A and B are supposed as frontrunners doesn't mean one will win, particularly
if they are both low-utility, and if the voters are reasonably split on which
of the two they prefer.  (If the Approval vote shows 85%-15% for A over B, the
odds seem reduced that some other candidate will be able to win by topping 85%.)

I think a concern about bad information about frontrunners is that it might
convince some voters not to bother with candidates who are not predicted to
do well.  But this is a concern with all methods, not just Approval.
