Start the Day Right With The Top Political Newsletters

Political news moves at a breakneck pace. While following along on social media can be a great way to keep up with the latest blips on the screen, we also like to read a handful of political newsletters before stepping into the office. They give concrete analysis and offer a little more depth than a tweet, without being quite as long as a full-length article. Here are just a few that we subscribe to….

Politico Pulse

Their morning missive serves up a huge host of political snippets and links to check out. Plus, their breaking news updates are handy for the work day, when you want to know what’s going on but don’t want to be distracted by social.

The Gray Lady’s online, political newsletter summarizes a couple of the morning essential news bites and then links to many more. We read alongside their standard daily newsletter.

The Skimm

Funny, sarcastic, informative, and easy to digest all wrapped up into one daily email. We cannot say enough about the Skimm, and it is certainly one of the favorite political newsletters in our office. It's a quick but effective deliverance of the top stories of the day. 

Hubspot Marketing Blog

This occasional newsletter from the inbound marketing gurus at Hubspot gives all kinds of business and marketing insights and more. Their dispatch might contain a list of essential TED Talks, Snapchat updates, web design ideas and more. It’s not politically focused at all, but it feels like a little B-school update when it arrives.
