This newspaper containsa large banner headline announcing the UNPRECEDENTED re-election of FRANKLIN D ROOSEVELT as US PRESIDENT forhis THIRD term in office.
Great display newspaper on the unprecedented re-election of FDR for his third term.
The United States presidential election of 1940 was the 39th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 5, 1940. The election was fought in the shadow of World War II (in Europe) as the United States was emerging from the Great Depression. Incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), the Democratic candidate, broke with tradition and ran for a third term, which became a major issue. The surprise Republican candidate was maverick businessman Wendell Willkie, a dark horse who crusaded against Roosevelt's perceived failure to end the Depression and his supposed eagerness for war. Roosevelt, acutely aware of strong isolationist sentiment in the U.S., promised there would be no involvement in foreign wars if he were re-elected. Willkie conducted an energetic campaign and managed to revive Republican strength in areas of the Midwest and Northeast. However, Roosevelt won a comfortable victory by building strong support from labor unions, urban political machines, ethnic voters, and the traditionally Democratic Solid South.
The ratification of the 22nd Amendment in 1951 makes this election the only occasion in American history in which a candidate was elected to a third full term as president. Roosevelt would go on to win election to a fourth term in 1944, before dying less than three months into that term.
