    change of the tide rip

    In Japanese, something like these is said:
    1. The ruling party secretary-general's bribery case has changed the current rip in favor of the opposition party.
    2. The current rip has changed because of the ruling party secretary-general's bribery case.

    Do they work in English? If not, are there any similar expressions in English?
    Thank you.

    I'd use tide rather than rip, but trend sounds more natural
