From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1932 Republican National Convention was held at Chicago Stadium in Chicago, Illinois, from June 14 to June 16, 1932. It renominated President Herbert Hoover and Vice President Charles Curtis for their respective positions.

Hoover was unopposed for the nomination, despite a lackluster Republican Party. Nonetheless, the convention praised Hoover and pledged itself to maintain a balanced budget.

Candidates Gallery and Balloting Results

Hoover's managers at the Republican National Convention ran a tight ship, not allowing expressions of concern for the direction of the nation. Hoover was nominated on the first ballot with 98% of the delegate vote.

The tally was spectacularly lopsided:

Presidential Ballot, RNC 1932
President Herbert Hoover 1126.5
U.S. Senator John J. Blaine 13
Former President Calvin Coolidge 4.5
Former U.S. Senator Joseph Irwin France 4
James W. Wadsworth 1
