FDR campaigns at the Hollywood Bowl in 1932.

Politics, United States: Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt defeats Republican Herbert Hoover for the Presidency of the United States, getting 57% of the vote. He will remain in power until until shortly before the end of the war, predeceasing Adolf Hitler by barely two weeks.

Adolf Hitler also wins his decisive election in 1932. In a remarkable coincidence, both Roosevelt and Hitler use the identical campaign song. The German version is sung by Nick-Mick Verhaften, known as the Nazi Crooner. The English version, more popularly known as "Happy Days Are Here Again," is sung by the St. Louis Toodle-Oos, who joined Roosevelt in his Missouri campaign tour.
