Major Problem

One day while campaigning against Dwight Eisenhower during the 1952 presidential election, Adlai Stevenson was approached by a female admirer. "Governor," she enthused, "every thinking person will be voting for you." "Madam, that is not enough," Stevenson replied. "I need a majority!"

[Needless to say, despite his popularity among intellectuals, Stevenson lost the election.]
