Does Harry Enten Of CNN Have A Girlfriend Or Is He Married With A Wife?

There are many who have come as close as can be to the heart of the world that they constantly keep us abreast of what goes on within and around us. These set of people are better described as journalists. An acclaimed member of this class is Harry Enten, an American journalist who is popular for his work on CNN Politics and the prominent website FiveThirtyEight. He worked as the website’s senior political writer and analyst and now doubles as Senior Writer and Analyst for the network.

Prior to working in any of the above platforms, he worked at The Guardian. Being a competent political journalist who analyzes politics using polling data combined with demographics and history, Enten has gained substantial recognition. He was named 538’s Whiz Kid and his ability to prioritize data based coverage despite campaign reportage further earned him the recognition as the new generation political journalist by the Colombia Journalism Review.

Let’s explore Harry Enten’s Bio, CNN career, father, wife or girlfriend.

Harry Enten’s Bio

He was born and raised in a Jewish family in the Riverdale neighborhood of The Bronx, New York on the 22nd of June 1988 and given the name Harry Joe Enten. As a child, he was introduced to politics by his father. The latter took his son who was aged 4 at the time into the polling booth where he helped to pull the levers for elections. That piqued his interest in the political world and would help him years later to zero his career choice in political journalism.

Harry Enten completed his high school education at Riverdale Country School. To further his studies, he chose Dartmouth College in New Hampshire partly because of the state’s status as the first-in-the-nation primary. His interest in politics was further nurtured at Dartmouth along with his flair for sports and weather. He graduated Magna cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 2011 with a degree in Government. The 6 feet 2 inches tall bloke is an avid fan of the NFL team Buffalo Bills.

He started publishing a blog called Margin of Error in 2009 while in school. Therein, he analyzed political polling and statistics as well as developed arguments supported by data. His efforts on his blog were appreciated by pundits and his posts were cited by outlets like The Atlantic, The New Republic and The Economists. He also held an internship at the NBC News Political Unit in Washington, D.C. In time, he was hired as a writer by The Guardian. Afterwards, he landed a job as a senior political writer and analyst at the popular political blog FiveThirtyEight founded by Nate Silver. He joined the site in 2013 after it relaunched on ESPN from The New York Times.

On his new platform, Enten utilized his love for statistics and did more of analytical rather than just be an ideologue. His job description includes writing political articles as well as bits of weather pieces. He also co-hosted the FiveThirtyEight politics podcast and also earned a fitting moniker, considering his age and level of wisdom. Harry was nicknamed Whiz Kid and was said to represent the new generation of political journalism.

CNN Career

Five years after an explosive career at FiveThirtyEight, Harry Enten announced in February 2018 on an episode of their weekly podcast that the time has come for his boat to set sail. He left the shores of FiveThirtyEight to join CNN Politics as a senior political writer and analyst.

In CNN Politics, he took his wizardry in using numbers to predict results up a notch. As a writer and analyst, Harry Enten specializes in data-driven journalism, covering politics with a focus on poll numbers and electoral trends.

Who Is His Father?

Harry is the son of an NYC judge Harold Enten and Dr. Barbara E. Strassberg both of whom are Jewish. As earlier mentioned, he credits his father for inspiring his interest in political matters. A member of his extended family is the singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka who is his nephew.

His father who also doubled as his best friend died on September 9, 2015, and was buried in a Jewish cemetery.

Is Harry Enten Married With Wife Or Does He Have A Girlfriend?

He tweeted sometime in 2013 that he is in search of a girlfriend. While we were left wondering if he did found one, he stated in another tweet four years later that marriage and kids are too soon for him. Fast forward to 2018, he posted a cute dog which he said was sent to him by an unnamed girlfriend.

Now it is very likely that he has a girlfriend, what we should listen for then is the wedding bells. As of now, the whiz kid is still borrowing some time for tasting married life.
