"I approved your project and it fell through."

(does this sound natural?)
A: 1) I would not say that a PRESIDENCY falls though. It could "be a failure" or "a disaster" but it wouldn't "fall through". However, your "CANDIDACY" or "ATTEMPT TO BECOME PRESIDENT" could fall through.

2) Sounds OK because the PROJECT didn't fall through, the APPROVAL of it fell through.

"fell through" implies an attempt of some kind. You don't "attempt" a presidency, you either are or you aren't. I mean, Donald Trump was a total disaster, but he WAS President and you wouldn't use "fall through" with him. But you could with Hilary - "she tried to win the presidency but it fell through", you are talking about her ATTEMPT.
