Great quiz.

Interesting that five were elected, four inherited the office after assassination, and four inherited the office from natural death. A VP has about equal odds of becoming president by any of those methods. Pence could be the second by resignation, or the first by impeachment.

Also interesting that there was a 132 year gap between VPs getting elected, from Van Buren to Nixon, during which time (all) eight VPs became president due to the elected president's death.

Thanks sumguy! I thought it was an interesting trend to make a quiz on. Based on your analysis, it seems we think similarly :)
