It is certainly true that under the current system getting 48.2% of the popular vote doesn't guarantee you'll become President of the United States (even if your opponent only gets 46.1%). On the other hand, Barack Obama never got more than 52.9% of the popular vote--hardly a "supermajority"--and he DID get elected. Twice.
