On the previous road trip, I did some research on how many states did not have a president.
I created a list of states and searched up a list of presidents. I referred to Wikipedia and other history websites as my sources. Different than most list on the internet, the state we checked were not based on their birthplace, but the place they ran for political office before they ran for president. For example, George H. W. Bush was born in Massachusetts but he ran for Congress for Texas. Also, I couldn’t count George Washington in because he didn’t run for anything before he became president.
In summary, there are 17 states that have had a president worked for them and 33 states that don’t. Interesting, right?
