With a track record of identifying election trends before they become conventional wisdom, Axios senior political correspondent Josh Kraushaar is one of Washington's leading political analysts. He reports on the latest developments on the campaign trail and is also the author of the weekly Sunday Sneak Peak newsletter, which focuses on the big-picture forces driving American politics.
While politics is often complicated and granular, Kraushaar is uniquely able to reveal the larger trends within elections to all audiences. With his holistic, big picture approach, Kraushaar expertly connects with audiences of all backgrounds, explains the issues at large that loom over Washington, and breaks down the possible consequences of those issues on everyday Americans.
Before working at Axios, Kraushaar served as editor-in-chief of the Hotline, where he authored the biweekly Against the Grain column and hosted a weekly podcast featuring the leading lawmakers, political operatives and journalists for candid interviews. He also served in 2014 as a co-author of the Almanac of American Politics, a must-have resource for political junkies.
Kraushaar frequently appears as a political analyst on television and radio. He is a political analyst for Fox News Radio, where he co-anchors coverage of major political news events and provides color commentary on election nights. He’s a regular on Fox News’ “Special Report” political panel with Bret Baier and has made appearances on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
