Politico's bias rating is Lean Left.

History of the Politico Media Bias Rating

Politico's media bias rating was previously Center. On February 1, 2018, after analyzing results from an AllSides blind bias survey and editorial review, the Politico media bias rating moved from Center to Lean Left. Previous AllSides blind bias surveys on Politico brought back a Center rating, though close to Lean Left. However, our 2017 blind survey results came back as a solid Lean Left. The AllSides community has provided feedback and the majority agree that Politico has a Lean Left rating. Our team also conducted an Editorial Review and found Politico's articles demonstrate a consistent Lean Left bias.

As of July 2016, over half of the 6,000 AllSides users who voted disagreed with our rating of Center, and those who disagreed had an average rating of Center, with a small lean toward Left. A March 2013 blind bias survey of Politico's headlines produced results closer to Lean Right, though not far from Center.

According to a 2014 Pew Research Center study, "Where News Audiences Fit on the Political Spectrum," "Just 16% of the Politico audience has mixed ideological views, compared with 36% of all Web users. Consistent conservatives are represented in Politico's audience on par with their proportion among all respondents, while consistent liberals are overrepresented."

Rightwing sites The Daily Caller and Breitbart each published stories in 2011 and 2012, respectively, claiming that Politico has a liberal bias in its news coverage.

Media Bias/Fact Check rates Politico as "least biased" and "high" for factual reporting.
