This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 1920, 1924 & 1928 - Harding-Coolidge-Hoover. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
After a generation of progressive insurgency within the Republican party, it returned in 1920 to a conservative stance. The party’s choice for president was Senator Warren G. Harding of OH, a political insider. Governor Calvin Coolidge of MA, best known for his tough handling of the Boston police strike of 1919, was the vice-presidential nominee. The Democratic party nominated James M. Cox, governor of OH, and Franklin D. Roosevelt of NY, assistant secretary of the navy in the Wilson administration.
Democratic chances were weakened by President Woodrow Wilson’s having suffered a stroke in 1919. The Socialist party nominated Eugene V. Debs, imprisoned for his opposition to World War I, and Seymour Stedman of OH.
The Republican nominees for president and vice president in 1924 were President Calvin Coolidge and Charles G. Dawes of IL. President Warren G. Harding had died in 1923. In choosing their candidates the Democrats were faced with polar opposites. Alfred E. Smith of NY was the epitome of the urban machine politician, and he was also Catholic; William G. McAdoo was a Protestant popular in the South and West. A deadlock developed; on the 103rd ballot the delegates finally settled on John W. Davis, a corporation lawyer, and Charles W. Bryan of NB, the brother of William Jennings Bryan.
The Republican presidential nominee in 1928 was Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover of CA. Charles Curtis of KS was his running mate. The Democrats nominated Alfred E. Smith, governor of NY, and Senator Joseph T. Robinson of AR. Hoover and Smith had been widely known as potential presidential candidates long before the campaign of 1928, and both were generally regarded as outstanding leaders quite apart from the office of president. Seldom has this been the case of both contenders in an election. However, each candidate faced serious discontent within his party membership, and neither had the wholehearted support of the party organization.
