Political Parties that Presidents have been members of: 

Unaffiliated (2)       Federalist (1)       Democratic-Republican (4)       Democratic (15)       Whig (4)       Republican (19)       National Union (2)

George Washington was the only President never affiliated with a political party. Because of his policy choices some call him a Federalist as he was closer to agreement with them than the Democratic Republicans.  John Tyler became unaffiliated when the Whig party kicked him out over his decisions. The National Union Party is really no party at all but was formed solely so Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, could run with Andrew Johnson, a Democrat.  Upon Lincoln’s Assassination Johnson became President and is therefore listed as a national Union President.  He ran for reelection as a Democrat.
