Two events greatly aided FDR in obtaining his third term. For one thing, the GOP forsook its Babe Ruth, Sen. Robert Taft (R-Ohio) and sent in its bat boy, Wendell Willkie. For another, the French chose the early summer of 1940 to live up to their reputation for being cheese-eating surrender monkeys, thereby putting the Western world in danger.
