Which president in Group B can be added to Group A? Why?

Group A: Thomas Jefferson, James Garfield, Warren Harding, Ronald Reagan
Group B: James Polk, Andrew Johnson, Benjamin Harrison, William Taft, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon

Thomas Jefferson was elected in 1800, James Garfield was elected in 1880, Warren Harding was elected in 1920, and Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980. Therefore, John Kennedy, who was elected in 1960, can be added to Group A.
