Thursday Trivia

I heard this one last night and was pretty impressed.

Who was the last incumbent president to lose in a two-way race?

    I thought Ford didn’t run. So: Hoover?

      Hoover is correct! I guess Ford is kind of right, but he wasn’t running for reelection…which is how I completely misworded the question. I should have said “to lose reelection in a two-way race.” As Rick Perry says…”oops.”

        I KNEW the sheer volume of presidential history non-fiction I read would be good for something!
