The United States House of Representatives House election, 1940 coincided with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's re-election to an unprecedented third term. His Democratic Party narrowly gained seats from the opposition Republican Party, cementing their majority. However, the election gave firm control of the US House of Representatives and Senate to the New Dealers once again, as Progressives dominated the election.[1]

The upswing in the economy that occurred following the Recession of 1937-38 encouraged voters that the New Deal plan had actually been working. This allowed the Democrats to stabilize their support.
