Alf Landon Frank Knox Campaign Poster 1936 President Election Franklin Roosevelt For Sale

Alf Landon Frank Knox Campaign Poster 1936 President Election Franklin Roosevelt

Up for sale is this great campaign poster from the 1936 presidential election campaign. Titled “LANDON and KNOX for US – Deeds . . . Not Deficits”. This poster is in great condition, with just one small rust mark at upper left in the margin. It is printed on paper, measures 14” x 21”, and is guaranteed original to the 1936 election.

Republicans Alf Landon, the politically moderate Governor of Kansas, and Vice-Presidential nominee Frank Knox ran were soundly defeated by President Franklin Roosevelt and Vice-President John Garner in 1936. The election took place as the Great Depression entered its eighth year. Incumbent President and Democratic candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt was still working to push the provisions of his New Deal economic policy through Congress and the courts. However, the New Deal policies he had already enacted, such as Social Security and unemployment benefits, had proven to be highly popular with most Americans. Although some political pundits predicted a close race, Roosevelt went on to win the greatest electoral landslide since the beginning of the current two-party system in the 1850s. Roosevelt carried every state except Maine and Vermont, which together could only return 8 electoral votes. By winning 523 electoral votes, Roosevelt received 98.49% of the electoral vote, the highest percentage since the uncontested election of 1820. Roosevelt also won the largest number of electoral votes ever recorded at that time, so far only surpassed by Ronald Reagan in the election of 1984, when there were 7 more electoral votes available to contest. In addition, Roosevelt won 60.8% of the national popular vote, the second highest popular-vote percentage won since 1820 (the highest percentage was won by Lyndon Johnson in 1964).

Good luck, and please message me with any questions.
