Very few Vice Presidents have successfully been elected immediately after their President--just Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, and George H.W. Bush. Jefferson's election was before the system was modified by the 12th amendment. Van Buren and Bush won because of the popularity of the incumbent President. The other Vice Presidents who have become President did so because the President died in office, apart from Richard Nixon.
