Born same year or same date

In same year

On the same date

Only one date, November 2, has been the birthday of more than one President– 11th President James K. 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 one to date, occurred after 28 distinct presidents had served.
