Franklin D. Roosevelt
Democratic

The 1932 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania took place on November 8, 1932. Voters chose 36 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Pennsylvania voted for the Republican nominee, President Herbert Hoover, over the Democratic nominee, New York Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hoover won Pennsylvania by a margin of 5.51 percentage points.

With 50.84% of the popular vote, Pennsylvania would be Hoover's third strongest state in the nation after Vermont and Maine[1].

This is the last election where the Republican candidate carried Philadelphia County in a presidential election.[2] This was also the third most recent election in which Pennsylvania did not vote the same as neighboring New York[citation needed], a phenomenon that has only been repeated twice since, in 1988 and 2016. As of 2018, this is the last time Luzerne County backed a candidate who lost Pennsylvania.
