You realize Herbert Hoover was to the left of Theodore Roosevelt, right? Almost the entire "New" Deal was based off Hoover's proposals.

He was a disaster.  That's all I care about.

Yeah, but then FDR extended the policies that made him a disaster.

no, not exactly buddy.  I've already fought the FDR battle before and maybe will again one day here, but FDRs actions worked in getting the country out of a hole.

The economy showed some signs of life when the Supreme Court struck his "New" Deal down. Unemployment dropped to 18 percent in 1935, 14 percent in 1936, and even lower in 1937.

Then you have the court packing scheme. Unemployment returns to 20 percent by 1938, and the stock market crashes nearly 50 percent.

by the end of his presidency, the numbers were waaay back down.  Unemployment jumped only one year, decreased all the others.  I don't remember all the exact numbers, but I remember the steady decrease.

Here's what I've gathered

in mid-1932, unemployment hit its high at 33%.  It decreased slowly except for a rise around 1937ish.  The Depression ended when WWII started in 1939 and demand for war materials helped the US economy.

I have a printed page somewhere detailing US unemployment rates from 1930-1940, but don't ask me where it is.
