With ease and insight, Gloria Borger clarifies the day's most complicated political issues. She’s an expert on explaining the “why” of politics—what drives voters at a particular moment, why the country may be so divided, what solutions are available to put politics back together. Drawing on her network of sources and sharp journalistic instincts honed from years of untangling the maze-like twists of Washington politics, Borger’s knowledge of the demographics and directions the country is moving make for an interesting and enjoyable presentation.
Gloria Borger is CNN’s senior political analyst, appearing regularly across all CNN dayside and prime time platforms, including The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, The Lead with Jake Tapper, and AC 360 with Anderson Cooper. She has also played a pivotal role in covering elections and other breaking news.
Most recently, (April, 2023) Borger was honored with the Hall of Fame achievement award by Washington Women in journalism.
Borger has reported documentaries and long form pieces for CNN, including the two-hour election profiles of now President Joe Biden, former president Donald Trump, and GOP nominee Mitt Romney. She also reported the award winning and Emmy-nominated documentary pieces, “The Odd Couple,” on lawyers Ted Olsen and David Boies, who joined together—after being on opposite sides of the Bush v Gore case in 2000—to shepherd gay marriage to the Supreme Court. And she also reported the well-received documentary “Almost President: The Agony of Defeat,” which profiled former presidential candidates who described what it was like to live through a failed presidential campaign—perhaps the greatest public failure in American political life.
Borger’s pieces—in addition to documentaries—range from a look at the first hundred days of the covid vaccine, to a portrait of Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the January 6 committee, and a piece on Eric Adams as he was becoming mayor of New York, to name a few.
