Anyone hear about Presidents elected in a year ending with a zero dying before leaving office?

Its not a theory, its history, except for Reagan, and he would have died except for modern medicine

The Zero Factor
From 1840 to 2000, every President of the United States elected in a year ending in zero has died in office [or had an attempt made on his life].

I wonder if bush will be able to beat the odds?

It might be true. But so what? It's just coincidence. There is no such thing as a curse.

Have there been any presidents in recent memory that did not have an "attempt" on their life? IIRC, Ford had a manson family chick after him and Clinton had people firing at the white house. Granted, they werent as serious as Reagan actually being shot, but still.

I didn't say(or think)anything about a curse

Here is something from another website

www.trivia-library.com/u.s.-presidents-the-zero-factor/
Only Thomas Jefferson, elected in 1800, and James Monroe, elected in 1820, escaped the zero factor. And Zachary Taylor was the solitary President to die in office without benefit of the zero factor. He was elected in 1848-but note: he died in 1850.

I remember one plane crashing on the lawn, but I thought that was a legitimate crash, ie, not an attempt on anyone's life.

The victorious presidential candidate in 1900 was William McKinley. At the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., on September 6, 1901, President McKinley was fired upon by an anarchist named Leon Czolgosz. As the President was being taken away in an ambulance, he said weakly, "Let no one hurt him." McKinley died in a hospital in Buffalo on September 14, 1901. Czolgosz was tried, found Guilty, and executed in an Auburn, N.Y., prison on October 29, 1901.

WOW, that's like 7 weeks from crime to dirt nap! Nowadays it takes about 20 years.

I'm pretty sure one impacted on the side of the building, an assassination attempt

I think it was the History Channel that had a program on this a bit ago. Pretty "coincidental" if nothing else. Interesting..

It would be of interest only if no other presidents had assasination attempts or were assasinated....so this is nothing special, move along...

really old news. They talked about it in the late '70s before Reagen was elected. they tried to get him but he didnt die.....
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 4:19:54 AM EDT
Yes, I heard about this in 1980 or so when Reagan got elected. According to ancient folklore, he broke the cycle when he survived an attempted assasination in 1981.
