How many Unites States Presidents were born in Colorado?

Actually, ZERO. In fact, when you look at the geography of all the President's birth state, you definitely see a pattern.

Overall, only 21 states have ever produced a President. But, what is really shocking is that the western half of the United States is barely represented. Get a load of this fact:

Just two presidents were born west of the Rocky Mountains. Richard Nixon and Barack Obama. In fact, only eight total were born west of the Mississippi River.

So, where are they all coming from? The breakdown is like this, Virginia leads all states with eight presidents calling VA their birth state.

More than half of the 45 come from just four states. Virginia, Ohio, New York and Massachusetts. 24 out of 45 are from those states. I wonder why that is?
