Stuart Rothenberg

Stuart Rothenberg is an American editor, publisher, and political analyst. He is best known for his biweekly political newsletter The Rothenberg Political Report. He is also a regular columnist at Roll Call and an occasional op-ed contributor to other publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Orlando Sentinel.[1]


Rothenberg, currently a resident of Potomac, Maryland, lived in Waterville, Maine while attending Colby College before relocating to Connecticut to earn his Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut.[1] For a time, he settled in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, to teach political science at Bucknell University, a subject he has also taught at the Catholic University of America.

In addition to his writing, he has been frequently featured in news broadcasts and worked with CNN as a political analyst for over ten years. He also served as a political analyst for CBS News and for the Voice of America. He is also a guest contributor for Political Wire.

Rothenberg is married and the father of two children.

Rothenberg is most recently known for his prediction in early 2009 that the GOP’s chances of winning back the US House of Representatives in 2010 were “zero.”[2] Rothenberg later would change his prediction as the economy worsened and polls reflected increasing support for Republicans through the Tea Party protests. The Rothenberg Political Report projected Republicans would gain between 55-65 seats in the House of Representatives (they gained 63) and between 6-8 seats in the Senate (they gained 6).
