[Ques] Who was the first President to choose their own VP running mate?

The Quiz: Who was the first President to choose their own VP running mate?

Thomas Jefferson
Andrew Jackson
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Ulysses S. Grant

Explanation : When George Washington became the first U.S. President, the office of Vice President fell to the runner-up in the election. This system didn’t last long, however, and the choice fell instead to the political parties, who would nominate candidates at their convention. That all changed in 1940 with Franklin D. Roosevelt, who convinced the convention to allow him to select his own running mate, as Presidents still do today.

Correct Answer: Franklin D. Roosevelt
