The Popular Appeal of Franklin Roosevelt

Helmut Norpoth

  • Employs public opinion polls from the 1930s and 1940s that have largely remained untapped
  • Examines FDR's popular appeal from the vantage point of wartime leadership
  • Argues that FDR's fireside chats moved public opinion on foreign policy and elevated him to a rare height of popularity
