Lets see, he tried to fire the Supreme court justices because they didn't allow many of his socialist plans to go forward. Then he tried to simply add justices to the court to get a favorable majority. After that didn't work he tried to set up another court with equal powers to counter the sitting justices.
He held godlike status with most of the people due to his social programs. Many of the folks in my parents generation, referred to a "The Greatest Generation", were Dems simply because of him. They defended him vociferously. In fact, most of them were to the right of Republicans on the day.
He is the reason for the 22nd amendment that limits the Prez to two terms.

After two terms even Eleanor admitted that they had not solved the unemployment problem. Eight years of the New Deal and that fact cannot be denied. The middle class was created out of WW II and massive amounts of war bonds that were redeemed in the 1950's.
