I have McKinley and McGovern... Tyler and Arthur never received electoral votes. They came into office when WH Harrison and Garfield died, respectively. Neither stood for reelection.

Am reasonably sure Franklin Rooosevelt, not Alf Landon, was the Democratic candidate in 1936.

Landon was a Republican.
