The 37th Presidential Election in American history took place on November 8, 1932. Incumbent Republican President Herbert Hoover lost to Democratic Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York.

Hoover was blamed for the Great Depression, and tried to ease it, but the Depression got worse. Roosevelt also had the advantage of name recognition, since he was the fifth cousin of the late Theodore Roosevelt.

This election marked a long period where Democrats controlled the White House, as Democrats would win the next five elections. It also marked the beginning of Roosevelt's 12 years and 1 month as President-the longest tenure of any President.
