Today most people assume that FDR's reelection was assured. Yet, as David M. Jordan's account reveals, neither the outcome of the campaign nor  Leer más

schema:description"Although the presidential election of 1944 placed FDR in the White House for an unprecedented fourth term, memory of the election itself has been overshadowed by the war, Roosevelt's death the following April, Truman's ascendancy, and the decision to drop the atomic bomb. Today most people assume that FDR's reelection was assured. Yet, as David M. Jordan's account reveals, neither the outcome of the campaign nor even the choice of candidates was assured. Just a week before Election Day, pollster George Gallup thought a small shift in votes in a few key states would award the election to Thomas E. Dewey. Though the Democrats urged voters not to "change horses in midstream," the Republicans countered that the war would be won "quicker with Dewey and Bricker." With its insider tales and accounts of party politics, and campaigning for votes in the shadow of war and an uncertain future, this book records a fascinating chapter in American political history.--From publisher description."@en
