Andrew Prokop covers the White House, Congress, elections, and really anything about politics that piques his interest.
He’s profiled Mitch McConnell, Bernie Sanders, and Andrew Cuomo, and written features on President Obama’s expansion of executive power and Steve Bannon’s effort to reshape the GOP. He’s also written comprehensive explainers on the Iowa caucuses, the convention process, the Electoral College, the Congressional Budget Office, the ousters of Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon from Trump’s White House, and many other political topics.
In September 2015, he made the case in a feature that political scientists were dramatically underestimating Donald Trump’s chances of winning the Republican nomination. He’s been at Vox since the site’s launch in 2014, and before that, he worked as a research assistant at the New Yorker’s Washington, DC bureau.
