EDIT: It's also called the 20 year curse because, if you haven't noticed, every president elected on a year that is a multiple of 20 died.

No actually it's just random facts xD, I found this kinda interesting so I shared it.
@TC they had to be elected on a year that is a multiple of 20, so Obama would have to serve 2 more terms. Not only that, but they say that Reagan broke the curse by surviving the assassination attempt, I'm not entirely sure about that but I guess we will see in 2020
