I was looking through some old newspapers today (you can do the same here, but be warned that it's very addictive) and came across a few particularly interesting ones in late 1936, right before the election where Roosevelt was re-elected with a stunning majority (523 to 8 electoral votes). This was right in the middle of the New Deal, and the Republican party was pulling out all the stops to oppose it. Here are just a few of the ones I found from October.
