The Democratic Party Convention was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and overwhelmingly nominated incumbant President F.D. Roosevelt.
Roosevelt won reelection by a wide margin; while the country was still suffering from the Great Depression, most voters thought Roosevelt's active programs were more likely to improve the situation than a return to a Republican administration.
