Robert Taft would probably narrowly win, but frankly, I could see a narrow victory for either side. If there is no World War II, then there is no Extra War Manufacturing going on, and the economy will take a turn for the worse, and that little recession from 1937-1938, extends into the 40's, which hurts Roosevelt. Plus, with no war and a worse economy, FDR will have a hard time explaining why he is running for a Third Term, and he'll face widespread opposition even from his Democratic Party.
