If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

US Presidents: Classified

This page lists every US president, and their respective vice-presidents, in chronological order. It also gives their ordinal numbers and dates, and the party they represented (where appropriate).

A common question is to ask the middle name of a given American president. As far as I can establish, the names given here are their full names; in other words, if I don't give a middle name, he didn't have one. (This doesn't apply to vice–presidents.)

The Elections section lists the runners–up in every US presidential election, back to 1928. I think you're most unlikely to get asked about anything earlier than this.

For other details about individual presidents, see US Presidents: Details. You can also find their wives' names (the most relevant ones, anyway) in People: Politicians' Families.

Elections

This section lists the runners-up, and their running mates, for every US presidential election back to 1928 – in reverse chronological order.

It also includes selected other candidates – where I think they might come up in UK quizzes.

In practice, you'll rarely get asked about any of these apart from the most recent one (or possibly the first election for a president who's in his – or her – second term). At the very least, I think it's safe to assume that the further down this table you go, the less likely you are to get asked it. I've only gone as far as I have because ... well, once you've started something, you might as well have a decent shot at it!
