Editor and Publisher of Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales and Elections Analyst for CQ Roll Call

Nathan Gonzales is Editor and Publisher of Inside Elections, which provides nonpartisan analysis of campaigns for Senate, House, governor, and president. He's also co-host of the Inside Elections Podcast and an Elections Analyst for CQ Roll Call. He tackles elections in a nonpartisan, data-driven, and accessible way and offers audiences some of the most detailed electoral forecasting in the business. 

Gonzales is full of enthusiasm and thought-provoking insights about politics. His recall of facts and figures is incredible, and he is natural, energetic, and engaging on stage. With a combination of reporting and data, Gonzales breaks down the key races and brings valuable context to complex elections. Drawing from personal candidate interviews and more than 20 years covering campaigns, Gonzales combines entertaining anecdotes with historical trends and current polling data to project which candidates are best positioned to win and which party is most likely to gain control of each chamber. Gonzales' winsome approach to politics is refreshing at a time when the country is divided, and he can reliably navigate audiences with differing partisan views.

Gonzales has appeared on NBC's Meet the Press and NBC Nightly News, C-SPAN's Washington Journal, NPR's All Things Considered, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC, and has been quoted in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
