FDR was one of the most popular presidents in US history. Unlike President Hoover before him, Roosevelt was not seen as a cold, wealthy Aristocrat who couldn't understand the plight of the average American. He was an activist President who promised the American people a "New Deal" that would change the system for decades. While it's arguable whether his social programs did anything to bring the U.S. out of the depression, they offered enough relief and comfort to the population to boost its overall morale and get him elected President 4 times. His compassion was most notable with his weekly radio "fireside chats", where his fatherly voice and comforting tone would assure the people with news of new work programs, health care benefits, social security and most of all... compassion. As for the war, America was torn over whether they wanted to follow the President's wish to join the British in their fight against Nazi Germany. Charles Lindberg, the aviation hero, briefly considered a run against the President in 1940 on a pro-German, anti-war, anti-British platform. But after making several anti-jewish speeches, the Republican party shunned Lindberg and nominated Wendell Willkie who lost against Roosevelt in the election. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, American's no longer questioned Roosevelt's push to join the war. The war had come to America.
Although Theodore Roosevelt was very popular, he was running against his own party, the Republicans (or Grand Old Party). Republicans were split in their allegiance to the Party and to Roosevelt, the former Republican President. This division split the GOP's votes and Democrat Woodrow Wilson gained the plurality and was elected president.
The two "Roosevelts" were Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, two American presidents. Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President, most notable for his contribution to the Progressive Era of trust-busting, conservation, and neo-imperialism (for example the Roosevelt Corollary and the Panama Canal). Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd President, most notable for his New Deal plan against the Great Depression and leadership during World War II. Theodore and Franklin were fifth cousins.
