Meet Jonathan Martin

Jonathan Martin offers an in-depth understanding of today’s political landscape, digging beneath the partisan rhetoric to explain how campaigns and Washington really work.

Martin is the national political correspondent for The New York Times and a political analyst for CNN, where he appears regularly on Inside Politics. Prior to joining The New York Times in 2013, he served as senior political writer and White House correspondent for Politico. He brings a fresh, nonpartisan perspective to politics in the 21st Century, drawing on a deep network of sources and keen understanding of history and current events. Fresh off his campaign-shaping coverage of the 2014 midterms, where traveled to more than a dozen states interviewing and reporting on some of the highest-profile Senate, House and gubernatorial candidates, Martin now helps lead the Times’ coverage of the 2016 presidential race. He has already made scores of reporting trips to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early-nominating states. And his stories on topics ranging from Hillary Clinton’s strategy to the fight for the Republican nomination have made front-page news.

Martin also covered the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns from the inside, reporting on the candidates and their strategy with sharp insight based on his extensive contacts with the country’s leading Democrats and Republicans. He was Politico’s senior reporter in 2012, winning praise for breaking news, and his ahead-of-the-curve reporting and analysis on Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. As one the first hires at Politico, he spent two years on the campaign trail writing about the historic 2008 race. After President Obama’s election in 2008, Martin traveled as a White House correspondent across the country and overseas, covering the new Obama Administration and an array of events including the G20 summit in London and a NATO summit in Strasbourg. He began his journalism career at National Journal’s political publication, The Hotline, and then reported on party politics and the aftermath of the 2006 midterm elections for National Review magazine. Martin is the co-author of The New York Times best seller, The End of the Line: Romney vs. Obama: The 34 Days That Decided the Election(December 2012), which provided an unprecedented minute-by-minute account of the 2012 race for the presidency. He is also sought-after political analyst and commentator frequently appearing on both television and radio, including CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and NPR.
