Gerald Ford, the 38th President, was the only president of USA who was never elected to either the position of President or Vice President of the USA. He was appointed to the post of Vice President after the resignation of Nixon VP, Spiro Agnew of Maryland and later become President after the infamous Watergate scandal which saw the resignation of President Nixon.

(Presidents John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson and Chester Arthur were all elected as vice-president, but were never elected to be President. They became President due to the death of the elected President. )

George Washington became the only unanimously elected US President when he was elected the first U.S. president in 1789. Washington received a unanimous vote of the Electoral College; there was no general popular election.

James Monroe received all but one of the electoral votes in 1820.

There have been five U. S. Presidents to date who were never elected President:

  1. John Tyler (1841-1845)
  2. Millard Fillmore (1850-1853)
  3. Andrew Johnson (1865-1869)
  4. Chester A. Arthur (1881-1885)
  5. Gerald R. Ford (1974-1977)

The last one, Jerry Ford, was never elected Vice President, either.

(Vice Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson also assumed the Presidency upon the death of the President, but each of them won the following Presidential election.)

John Tyler was the first vice-president to assume the presidency due to the death of President Harrison in 1840. Gerald Ford was appointed vice-president and became President when Richard Nixon resigned. He is the only President who was not elected vice-president or president.
