1944 US Presidential Election
Franklin D. Roosevelt had won the past three presidential elections and he wasn't going to stop there. For the previous twelve years of his presidency, Roosevelt had worked hard to lead Americans out of the Depression and reconstruct the economy. He helped citizens to rebuild confidence in them and in their country. He focused upon concern, attempting to balance taxes and moderate prices of food, even instituting farm price controls.
In his 1932 inaugural address he stated, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," and FDR carried out this promise of timely and strong action for his people. Thomas Dewey ran against Roosevelt in the election as the Republican candidate, however Dewey had no real platform supporting his candidacy other than attacking his opponent's campaign.
The election of 1944 is not really Roosevelt vs. Dewey, but rather Roosevelt vs. Roosevelt: those who supported him and those who did not.
