Q: What is the difference between in an attempt to and in a bid to ?
A: NordicRest has part of the nuance I think. While both phrases can be used somewhat interchangeably; as I understand it, the difference in nuance is as follows:

When someone says 'in an attempt to', it usually means that the subject being discussed performed some action in order to accomplish a specific goal, for the purpose of accomplishing that goal. It's a pretty straightforward 'this action was performed "in an attempt to" do this.'

Whereas, when someone says 'in a bid to', it seems to more be used in the context of the subject performed an action in an attempt to influence someone or something else, usually as a means for the subject to gain some benefit from the influence.

In American English 'in an attempt to' is used far more commonly than 'in a bid to'.
