November 3, 1936 FDR Wins Re-election in the Middle of The Great Depression

This election was the biggest landslide in the history of the electoral college – 523 to 8.  FDR would also win two more presidential elections – in 1940 and 1944.  When he died in 1945, he had been President since March 1933.  The U.S. Constitution was then amended by the states to make sure that no person could be elected President more than twice.
