Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt defeats Republican Herbert Hoover. This was a turning point for democrats because the republicans had controlled the presidency for most of the time since 1860. The main problem that the election of 1932 dealt with was the Great Depression. Hoover had been unsuccessful in dealing with the great depression. FDR had plans for a new deal, which would dramatically change the economy of America.
Progressive Party The Progressive Party was created as a result of President Theodore Roosevelt. They were mostly focused on getting America's financial system back to usual and making essential modifications. Progressive Party of 1912 had been called a political party in the United State and it was created by a split in the Republican Party. This was created by Theodore Roosevelt when he lost the Republican nomination to the ins office President William Howard Taft and drew his delegates out of the conference (Mowry, 1946-1960). After that party is become popular as the Bull Moose Party, later than the party’s symbol and later than Roosevelt’s show off that he was just "as strong as a bull moose".
Aside from the obvious tactical moves of rallying the base, targeting key voting groups such as women and Latinos, responding quickly to negative attacks, and reminding voters of his accomplishments, to be victorious in November, a few other essential strategic moves the president and his team must take are establishing a superb ground game, generating an effective, memorable, and powerful message, and raising millions of dollars. Much like he did in 2008, President Obama must generate an impressive an... ... middle of paper ... ...ff the Republican attacks and win reelection. In the end, it all comes down to the American people to decide which candidate they want to see in office. All it takes for President Obama is earning one more vote than Mitt Romney. With the current national conditions, this will be a hard fought campaign for the president.
But economically, Roosevelt and his “brains trust” had no idea what they were doing. They attempted one failed intervention after another. The Great Depression was a disaster, and sadly an avoidable one.” (Edwards, 2005) The trouble with this view is that it completely ignores some important facts. The entire time that Roosevelt was in office, the economy improved except for 13 months in 1937-1938 when farms were the only ones getting government subsidies. Unemployment again went through the roof until the government stepped back in.
He targeted the Mittelstand (Middleclass) for votes in the coming elections as due to hyperinflation they had lost their savings and were most discontented and although the Nazi’s only polled 2.6% in May 1928, Hitler had strong support from the north west (10%) and was preparing behind the scenes for when Germany was less affluent and even less stable. The Wall Street Crash also contributed to the success the Nazis had in the elections after 1929. The stigma that surrounded the Nazi’s working class image would become less important due to their association with Alfred Hugenberg. Hugenberg was elected leader of the D.N.V.P., German Nationalists party in October 1928. Hitler was to benefit significantly by gaining support from the D.N.V.P., it gave him and his party a more conservative respect... ... middle of paper ... ...ich made the government extremely unstable.

The Teapot Dome Scandal was the most famous scandal and ruined President Harding’s reputation. The Scandal was a bribery, Senator from New Mexico and Harding’s friend was convicted of taking the bribes from oil executives. It occurred because the federal government inserted itself in economic matters.
(Hitler Comes to Power) Hitler became the leader of the Nazi party because of his persuading and emotional speeches of national pride, militarism, and a “pure” Germany. He criticized the Jews and the party soon had approximately three thousand followers by the end of 1920. (Rise of the Nazi) However, Hitler was not yet satisfied with his power. In 1921, the SA, a semi military group of men to protect the Nazi meetings and intimidate opposing organizations, was founded. They were praised patriotic and grew to 400,000 under Ernst Roehm.
Masses of angry Jacksonians raised a roar of protest against this "corrupt bargain." The clamor continued for the four years of Adams' Presidency. A Yankee Misfit in the White House Adam's entered his presidency with a brilliant record in statecraft, especially in foreign policy, however while he is ranked as one of the most successful secretaries of state, he became one of the least successful presidents. Adams was further alienated when he asked Congress for additional money for internal improvements, aid to manufacturing, and even a national university and astrological observatory. In 1828, Adams was able to piece together a new tariff law that generally satisfied northern manufacturers but alienated southern planters, who denounced it as a "tariff of abominations."
How Roosevelt And His New Deal Prolonged The Great Depression The traditional view of Franklin D. Roosevelt is that he motivated and helped the United States during the “Great Depression” and was a great president, however, as time has passed, economist historians have begun analyzing Roosevelt’s presidency. Many have concluded that he did not help America during the Great Depression but instead amplified and prolonged the depression. Jim Powell wrote about FDR economic policies and did an excellent job explaining Roosevelt’s incompetent initiatives. Roosevelt did not know anything about economics and his advisors made everything worse by admiring the Soviet Union. Franklin D. Roosevelt attended Harvard University and then Columbia Law School, but did not graduate from law school.
By increasing taxes in a time of economic troubles, Hoover made it near impossible for the poor to climb out of poverty. With Congress passing budgets that sought to increase taxes across the board and deregulate business, economic recovery was slowed to a near standstill. All the while, Hoover tried to enact multiple emergency relief acts, but it was too little too late. President Hoover was viewed as a weak president, and the American people were tired of weak politicians. In the words of his 1932 presidential election opponent, “There is nothing in the man but jelly!”, and, “[He is] a fat, timid capon” (Gibbs 111).
