In 1932 Hoover is nominated by his party and is reelected because the Economy was close to crashing but it didn't due to Hoovers massive economic reforms.

Not only does the scenario you pose make little sense...

The map makes even less sense. I'm sorry.

The map doesn't make sense, but Hoover could narrowly win reelection if he vetoed the Smoot-Hawley Tariff.

The party wouldn't have renominated him if he had vetoed the tariff.

There are a zillion nitpicks I have with the map, but two of the biggest:

How'd Roosevelt win VT...?

Not only do the Dakota's vote differently, but 60% so!

It definitely would have been a tough fight.  If he continued to oppose the Republican consensus (as the first post indicates), I don't think they would have given him the nod.

Hoover makes a surprising move in his Inaugural address he states America shall support the Jewish people.

He also announces FDR to be Secretary of the Navy to show appeal among Democrats and Republican FDR supporters. Then Germany is invaded by the polish because of falling relations, which is overthrown in 1934. Hoover announces he will aid any allies who are in need of aid. Then Poland invaded Iraq and immediatly took it over. President Hoover declares neutral in possible European War.

In 1935 Japan invades Poland and bombs there main Naval base. FDR announces he will seek the Democratic Nomination for US President. Hoover doesn't run. Henry Beckindridge announces run so does Harry Truman. Alf Landon for Republicans.

In 1936 Harry Truman is nominated on the 100th ballot with FDR as V.P. Alf Landon is nominated and Robert Taft for V.P. Then Alf Landon wins in a massive landslide.

Up next Hoovers second term

It's mathmatically impossible for the REpublican to win 268 EVs while the Democrat to win 265 EVs, since there were only 531 EVs back then and 268+265=533. I calculated the values on your map and it should be:

Republican: 268
Democrat: 263

F**k?

Not only is this completely factually inaccurate, it's just plain unrealistic...What's happening in the US?  The Dust Bowl?  The Great Depression?  Also, how the hell does Poland invade Iraq?  Just what is this I don't even

No offense meant, but this is probably the worst TL I've ever seen.  I'm sorry.

I like the part where Poland invades the British Empire, immediately taking it over.

Meanwhile in a Polish-controlled Iraq, brave Polish forces captures Saddam Hussein (uuups, he wasn't even born yet) evil dictatorKing Ghazi and executez him for teh crimes against humanity.

Free elections to be held, but Iraq instead became Polan'd next Voivodeship, known as Eastern Masovia

When Alf Landon is sworn in America is deciding if it should fight. Then on May 15th Poland bombs England. The US sends 15000 troops without congressional approval.

For whatever reason, I really like this Nazi Poland situation.  It's just so incredibly bizarre that it's charming.
