In 1936, we saw a popular front from below.  I know
that some people will disagree with me, but I will
assert that the Communist Party had almost no
influence among Norman Thomas voters. 

Yet the Norman Thomas vote fell from 884,649 votes in
1932 to 187,833 in 1936.

The Socialist Party did not support Roosevelt.  This
massive desertion of Socialist voters to Roosevelt can
only be described as a popular front from below.
