Bradley Wascher

Contributing Analyst

Bradley Wascher is a Contributing Analyst with Inside Elections, which provides nonpartisan analysis of campaigns for Senate, House, governor, and president.

Bradley’s reporting focuses primarily on national elections, opinion polling, and political data more broadly. Alongside writing articles and creating graphics, he helps to calculate the Baseline and Vote Above Replacement metrics, and was part of the Inside Elections team that analyzed the redistricting process in Colorado. Much of his previous work appears on his blog, First Past the Poll.

Bradley graduated from Western Kentucky University with a bachelor’s degree in politics and statistics, and from Georgetown University with a master’s degree in government. Outside of his role at Inside Elections, he is also an assistant speech and debate coach for a high school in Florida — in turn, he believes the best analysis strikes a balance between academic and accessible.
