GQ: Who was the second least qualified U.S. President?

Trump is clearly #1, as he has never held a political office in his life. Even fellow TV icon Ronald Reagan was governor of California.

Who was #2, in terms of the least years of elected public service in any fashion, including small town mayorships and military leadership? (As General of the Armies, George Washington was certainly qualified -- PoTUS is also Commander-in-Chief, after all -- even though I don't think he ever held any other political office.)

Please try and keep this G.Q., I'm genuinely curiious.
