'Win the day' nghĩa là thắng lợi sau một cuộc tranh tài, thành công sau một cuộc tranh luận (thuyết phục ai/nhóm người theo ý mình) (be victorious in battle, sport, or argument; if you win the day, you persuade people to support your ideas or opinions, or if a particular idea wins the day, it is accepted by a group of people); ngoài ra còn có nghĩa là đạt được thắng lợi hoàn toàn (to achieve complete success).

Ví dụ
ALA and Libraries Win the Day on Net Neutrality.

In the next week, we should find out which strategy will win the day.

I read the story. Pork was used as a topping. Now if they had said pork toppings win the day at the burger brawl then it would have made sense.

In the 1990s, the Indian National Sample Surveys continued to use Mahalanobis’s thirty-day rule, although many other countries then used a shorter period of seven days because it was thought that respondents could not remember earlier events with any accuracy. This, it was argued by some, was why so much was being missed, and why poverty was being overstated. The argument won the day, the switch to a seven-day reporting period was made, and, as expected, average daily expenditures went up.
