  • I think three were assassinated though I am not too sure. Don't know how many attempts :)
  • Four assassinations: Lincoln, Garfield. McKinley and Kennedy. Attempts were made on Andrew Jackson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. It's dangerous to be President.

  • There have been four Presidents that have been shot in office. William Henry Harrison 1840 was first to die in office. (29 or 30 days in office depending on who is counting.) Abraham Lincoln elected first in 1860 20 years later James Garfield in 1880 was assassinated William McKinley was elected in 1900 and assassinated shortly thereafter Woodrow Wilson died after the election of 1920 Franklin Roosevelt died after the election of 1940 (he actually had another election in 1944 before his stroke in 1945.) John Kennedy was assassinated after the election of 1960 Ronald Reagan was elected first in 1980 and nearly died of a shot near his heart George Bush broke the "curse" by staying alive after election of 2000.
  • Assassinations that succeeded: 4 Lincoln (1865), Garfield (1882), McKinley (1901), Kennedy (1963) Assassination attempts Andrew Jackson (183?) Teddy Roosevelt (1912) Franklin Roosevelt (1933) Harry Truman (19??) Kennedy (1961) Nixon (197?), (197?) Ford (1975 twice) Carter (1970s) Reagan (1980s) Bush sr (80s / 90s) Clinton (90s) Bush jr (2000s)
  • Woodrow Wilson did die after the 1920 election (he died in '24) but he did not run in 1920 - Warren Harding ran and was elected in 1920. He died in 1923 in the midst of a scandal ridden term. I believe it was H.L Mencken who wrote that he died "because it was the best thing to do."
  • Lincoln, Garfield. McKinley and Kennedy
  • The original definition of assissinate was: to assail with murderous intent. Applying this definition, Ronald Reagan was in fact assissinated in 1981. As such, this was not an "attempted assissination" (he was shot), but rather an "unsuccessful assissination" (he survived).
  • "There have been multiple assassination attempts on presidents of the United States; there have been 20 attempts to kill sitting and former presidents as well as presidents-elect. Four attempts on sitting presidents have succeeded: Abraham Lincoln (the 16th president), James A. Garfield (the 20th president), William McKinley (the 25th president) and John F. Kennedy (the 35th president). Two other presidents were injured in attempted assassinations: then-former president Theodore Roosevelt and then-sitting president Ronald Reagan."
