    lsafhsThe decisions President Hoover made handling that depression left a negative opinion of him in the eyes of the people. Soon came time for the presidental election of 1932, and while many people did not like president Hoover, he was able to gain the Republican primary. Hoover's opponent, Franklin D Roosevelt, a Democratic governor from New York was his oppenent. With the problems of the depression taking its' effect on the American people, many citizens were looking for a change. Many people thought Franklin Roosevelt was the people's president. One of the reason many people thought this was by listening to his speeches. When talking to the people, many felt that FDR was talking directly to them and cared how they felt. Another reason many people liked FDR was his promise to help during the depression. The majority of the american people were left with a bitter taste in their mouth from president Hoover not doing much to help them. FDR promised the people that he would do anything he could to help the people get back to being able to support their families and put the trust back into banks. By the end of the election, Roosevelt beat Hoover 472 electoral votes to 59, the biggest victory in U.S. history at the time. {fdr_in_1933.jpg}
    {fdr-his-baby-now.gif} After Franklin Roosevelt won the presidential election, he went straight to work to get the U.S. back on track. The Political Cartoon shows the many challenges Roosevelt would have to take care of as president that Hoover did not address. The first 100 days, FDR began coming up with the new deal to help bring the problems to a hault.

    During President Hoover's term, it was uncertain if he would potentially be re-elected for president. during Hoover's term; 1.5 million Americans were homeless, 35% of the population was unemployed, and the american people did not trust their money with the banks, causing the banking system to be on the breaks of collapsing. While all of these problems hindered Hoover's chance at re-election, none of them come close in comparison to the Bonus Army March in the Spring of 1932.

    Soldier that served, received service certificates that could be redeemed for money with a little bit of interest. After the depression began, many Veterans went looking to collect their money that was promised to them. Even though this money was promised to the soldiers, President Hoovere did not give them what they earned. In reaction to Hoover's response, the Bonus Army March took place in 1932.when over 40,000 people marched into Washington D.C. to demand their money through protesting. President Hoover believes that if he waits long enough, that the mob of people will eventually get tired and clear out of the nation's capital, however numbers grew until Hoover called in for help in July of that year.
    On July 28th, President Hoover called in the help of the U.S. troops to force every protestor out of the nation's capital. Douglas MacAuthur and George Patton to charge is commanding the troops that kicked out their fellow Veterans. However, the protestors did what they could to resist leaving. This caused problems to begin. fighting broke out between the peaceful protesters and the troops. the end result 2 cops dead, 2 civilians dead, and one infant dead.
