Is Chuck Todd a Republican or Democrat?

Todd, 49, has been involved in politics and news for a long time. He worked for the 1992 presidential campaign of Senator Tom Harkin, who is a Democrat, in college. Now, he works for Meet the Press, which AllSides.com says has a “lean left” bias.

Based on his history of working for political campaigns and networks like MSNBC, which tends to skew left in coverage, it’s likely that he is a Democrat, however, it’s not clear what Todd’s registered political affiliation is.

Is Chuck Todd a registered Democrat?

Todd moderated the first of the 2020 Democratic Party presidential debates along with Jose Diaz-Balart, Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, and Rachel Maddow, and Maddow, at least, is considered to be a fairly liberal political commentator.

But again, that doesn’t confirm Todd’s own political feelings or registration.

Is Chuck Todd married?

Todd is married to Kristian Denny Todd, who is a communications professional for Maverick Strategies and Mail. The company offers services like consulting and direct mail for Democratic candidates and related causes.

She was also the spokesperson for the U.S. Senate campaign of Senator Jim Webb, a Democrat, in 2006.

That would suggest that Todd’s wife is a Democrat, but still doesn’t confirm that he himself as registered as such.

The couple shares two children together: a daughter, Margaret, and a son, Harrison. The family lives in Arlington, Virginia.

Is Chuck Todd an author?

Todd wrote The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House, published in 2014. In addition, he co-author of the book How Barack Obama Won: A State-by-State Guide to the Historic 2008 Presidential Election along with Sheldon Gawiser, which was published in 2009.

The subject of both books again indicates a Democratic affiliation for Todd, but without knowing his registration, it’s not totally clear whether Todd is a Democrat or Republican.

What has Chuck Todd said about politics?

As a longtime political commentator and host of political news TV shows, Todd has had a lot to say about politics over the years.


On Meet the Press in June 2015, Todd said, “It’s hard not to get down on the government when you see dysfunction play out on our TVs every day. Frankly, sometimes at every level of government.”

In August 2020, Todd was also criticized by some people for having a Republican as part of a panel discussion with more liberal journalists.

It seems like Todd is willing to both speak to and criticize both sides of the aisle, no matter his official political affiliation.
