Born same year or same date[edit]

In same year[edit]

On the same date[edit]

Only one date, November 2, has been the birthday of more than one President– 11th President James Polk and 29th President Warren Harding. The birthday problem indicates that, on average, a birthday will be shared after about 25 presidents have served. The Polk–Harding birthday coincidence, the only only one to date, occurred after 28 distinct presidents had served.
