Placard commenting on the presidential contest between incumbent Democrat Franklin Roosevelt and Republican challenger Alfred M. Landon, 1936. Cardboard with applied paper. Titled, "Who Is Ahead," depicts a "Landon and Knox" prairie schooner (auto window sticker) being pulled by a mule or donkey inscribed "New Deal" on its flank. Seems to imply that the Landon wagon wouldn't be rolling without the national recovery plan implemented under Roosevelt, known as the New Deal. Unique piece of period election folk art.
