1. Thomas Jefferson
2. George W. Bush
3. Jimmy Carter
4. Franklin D. Roosevelt
Answer: There have been nearly a dozen one term presidents who ran for second terms but were denied by voters. Democrat Jimmy Carter was the 39th president of the United States, serving from 1977 to 1981. He lost a campaign for re-election in 1980 to Ronald Reagan. Carter’s White House biography blames several factors for his defeat, not the least of which was the hostage-taking of U. S. embassy staff in Iran, which dominated the news during the last 14 months of his administration. Iran released the 52 Americans the same day Carter left office.
