  • The 1932 United States presidential election in Minnesota took place on November 8, 1932 as part of the 1932 United States presidential election. Minnesota was won by the Democratic candidate, New York governor Franklin D. Roosevelt won the state over incumbent President Herbert Hoover by a margin of 236,847 votes, or 23.62%. Nationally, Roosevelt won the election, with 472 electoral votes and a landslide 17.76% lead over Hoover in the popular vote. The election of 1932, the first held since the Wall Street Crash of 1929, was a realigning election which marked the effective end of the Republican-dominated Fourth Party System, and the beginning of the Fifth Party System, which led to the dominance of the New Deal Coalition in presidential politics until 1968. In Minnesota, a state in which Republicans had always previously been dominant, early warning of the Republicans' poor prospects for 1932 was given in the 1930 gubernatorial election, in which Farmer-Labor candidate Floyd B. Olson won the governorship by a landslide margin. Throughout most of the 1930s, Roosevelt would dominate presidential politics in Minnesota, while Olson and the Farmer-Laborites tended to dominate state politics. The eventual cooperation between the Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party and the Democratic Party, fostered by Olson and Roosevelt, would lead to the establishment of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party in 1944. This is also the first time Minnesota voted for the Democrats in a presidential election since it gained statehood in 1858, and only the second time it did not support the Republican candidate, after Progressive Party candidate Theodore Roosevelt in 1912, and would vote for the Democratic candidates every time after, except the presidential elections of 1952, 1956, and 1972. As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Lake County voted for a Republican presidential candidate (incidentally it was the only county to vote Republican in this election) and the last election in which Carver County and Otter Tail County voted for a Democratic candidate.
