If an idol isn't popular, there's no idol. If Chieri really dropped out from the election, can you imagine the reaction from all her fans how spent a lot of money on CDs to vote for her? They won't be happy at all. And it's not only the money, there's a lot of emotional investment going on here (for the fans, it's their dream to see their favorite idol achieve her dreams). If Chieri loses her fans' support, then that's it for her career.

That's why withdrawing from the election is such a risky move. She's effectively putting her career, her dream, on the line.

She should do this, and she probably did. But she shouldn't drop out from the election, though she probably did this too. I can only hope Tsubasa convinced her not to somehow.
