- from Great Depression
The New Deal helped many people, but it was taking a long time for things to get better. In 1936, Roosevelt was elected again in another landslide.
But unemployment kept going up. By May of 1938, 11 million people were still out of work.
Roosevelt gave a speech when he was sworn in the second time. He told people that he knew the country was still in trouble. He said, “I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished.”
