Best Answer

Fillmore was not nominated by the Whigs in 1852. He was a strong candidate for the nomination, being favored by the Southern delegates, but General Winfield Scott eventually won the nomination on the 53th ballot.

No. 1849 was not an election year. Besides that, the Whigs never nominated for Fillmore President. They ran Winfield Scott in 1852.
