The New Deal





CampaignWithout the hard work that was shown through Roosevelt's campaigning, he wouldn't have been awarded the position of the President of the United States of America. FDR's campaign consisted of expressing his lovable characteristics along with his intriguing ideas. As FDR spoke he would always deliver his words with confidence and charisma. This was one of the strategies that won most of his popularity over Hoover. Hoover lacked in having a personality whereas FDR was always entertaining and showed a caring nature. Although FDR was seen as a lovable man, he was also intelligent and his ideas motivated people to vote for him. The infamous idea made by FDR was the New Deal. He expressed that a vote for FDR would go towards a New Deal for the people. Living in the Great Depression people were desperate for positive change, and FDR was able to give US citizens hope for a better lifestyle. As a part of The New Deal FDR introduced the idea of the three R's: Relief, Recovery, and Reform. Since the Great Depression hit America hard, there had to be a strategy to revive the economy. Roosevelt had a vision that as president he could improve the state of the United States of America with his enforcement of the New Deal and the three R's. All of FDR's hard work was worth it when he won the election of 1932 by a landslide.
