The first time, the Republicans split their votes between Taft and Teddy Roosevelt (3rd term was legal back then). The second time, it was close, but California gave him the reelection over Charles Evan Hughes.

Teddy Roosevelt wasn't going for a third term, he was going for a second after his magical mystery safari while Taft kept his seat warm.

Got 27. But I'm surprised that so many knew the "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" slogan was connected to Harrison — not a wildly significant president, no?. Must be something kids still learn in school?

He died after 32 days in office (and was sick most of those), but the significance of his "Hard Cider and Log Cabin" campaign overshadows his brief time in office. He was one of the first (after Jackson) to appeal to the common man voter.

It's relatively easy to figure out if you just remember that Tyler was Harrison's VP. Then it's kind of a no brainer
+1

It's significant because it was the first time the VP took over for the president, and it was unclear whether the VP would just continue the work of the elected president as "acting President" (which he was called for a while) or be his own president. Tyler's decision paved the way for all future VP's who became president, so it's pretty significant. (Of course, there wasn't much of a presidency to continue, but still, he refused the "acting president" label.) So with that in mind, remembering that Tyler came after Harrison isn't too much of a stretch.
