The sentence "She's tilting toward the other candidate this year." was extracted from Dictionary.com but I noticed that you didn't agree with it. Do you think that using "tilt" here is far-fetched?
That is because the word "tilt" in that sentence means: thrust at someone with a lance or other weapon; it is meaning that she is aiming to upset the other candidate's campaign.
