The 1928 United States House of Representatives elections was an election for the United States House of Representatives in 1928 which coincided with the election of President Herbert Hoover.

The strong economy gave Hoover's Republican Party victory in the election, picking up 32 House seats, almost all from the opposition Democratic Party, and increasing their majority. The big business-supported wing of the Republican Party continued to cement control. Republican gains proved larger than anticipated during this election cycle, as an internal party feud over the Prohibition issue weakened the Democratic standing. Losses of several rural, Protestant Democratic seats can be somewhat linked to anti-Catholic sentiments directed toward the party's presidential candidate, Al Smith.
