Nathan Gonzales is the editor and publisher of Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales, which provides nonpartisan analysis of campaigns for Senate, House, governor and president. He was an editor, analyst, and writer for The Rothenberg Political Report for more than 13 years before taking over the company in 2015. He offers audiences some of the most detailed electoral forecasting in the business. He is a CNN political analyst and can regularly be seen on top media outlets discussing the latest in politics. The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today have all sought him out for his expertise. On Election Night 2016, Nathan was an on-air analyst for Newshour on PBS after working as an off-air consultant for ABC News on their Election Night Decision Desk for 14 years.

Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities, Inc. speakers bureau, 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. He interviews nearly all the candidates personally – from congressional and gubernatorial to state races, and using poll numbers, economic data, historical information, trends, demographics, interviews, and entertaining stories and analogies, he analyzes the current political environment, shares what you need to know about the races you didn’t even know about, and performs an election “autopsy” on the latest races, projecting what the results mean for you. In presentations, he takes a “descriptive” rather than “prescriptive” approach to the politics du jour, saying that Inside Elections describes what is happening in the world of politics in order to project the results.

In addition to publishing Inside Elections, Gonzales is also an elections analyst for Roll Call, and the Capitol Hill newspaper. Before The Rothenberg Political Report, he worked for and as associate producer for CNN’s Capital Gang.

Gonzales has appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press and NBC Nightly News, C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, CNN, and Fox News Channel. His work has also appeared on FiveThirtyEight, and, and in Campaigns & Elections magazine.

Gonzales grew up in Oregon, earned his master of arts from The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management (Washington, DC) and his bachelor of arts from Vanguard University (Costa Mesa, California). He first came to Washington, DC, as an intern in the White House Press Office and now lives in the city with his wife and four children.
