Pinback button opposing Franklin Roosevelt for president, 1940.

Roosevelt delivered his first national radio address a few days after his inauguration, and the broadcasts continued throughout his presidency. These "fireside chats" enabled the president to speak directly to the American people in their homes, and attracted more listeners than popular radio shows. Their purpose was to encourage support for his New Deal programs, and later the war effort. In 1940, when Roosevelt was campaigning for a third term, the opposition put out this pinback.
