Shermichael Singleton

Shermichael Singleton is a political consultant, writer, commentator, and former Contributing Host of Vox Media's Consider It, a current affairs digital show that aired weekly on Facebook Watch. He is also a 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree for Law and Policy for his contributions to politics and media.

As a political operative, he has worked on the presidential campaigns of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich where he focused on youth outreach and engagement. From there he went on to work on former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney's presidential campaign in campaign operations and coalitions where he traveled the country during the 2012 election. During the 2015 and 2016 cycle, he worked on the presidential campaign of renowned Neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson where he was the faith coalitions advisor tasked with targeting and building coalitions within the faith community, which would become Dr. Carson's strongest base of support. As a result, Dr. Carson became the only candidate to surpass President Trump in polls for several straight weeks during the 2016 campaign cycle.

In addition to his work on political campaigns, he was an opposition researcher for America Rising, LLC where he did opposition research for several Republican candidates running for Congress and the United States Senate.

Beyond politics, he also worked with Florida based non-profit Lauren's Kids, which focuses on raising awareness about child sexual abuse. During his time with Lauren's Kids, he was a part of a team of former political operatives who worked on a state wide bus tour across Florida to raise awareness for this very important issue.

When Dr. Carson ended his bid for the presidency, he appointed Shermichael as his director of communications, where he would manage all communications for the former presidential candidate.

As Dr. Carson's top aide during the presidential transition process, Shermichael played a pivotal role in successfully guiding Dr. Carson through the Senate confirmation process. Subsequently, he was appointed to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), where he was sworn in as the Deputy Chief of Staff, the youngest ever appointed to the role in the history of the agency. After his stint at HUD, Shermichael went on to become a CNN Political Commentator.

He now appears weekly on MSNBC where he offers political analysis.

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, he studied Political Science at Morehouse College and Government and Politics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Current Events

The number of Americans who are aware and becoming political engaged is on the rise. As current events becomes apart of our daily conversation, understanding the importance of these issues and their impact has become increasingly important.

Politics and Culture

As the political and cultural climate changes, Shermichael's objective and methodical commentary, explores how the two are connected and impact our lives. By identifying key issues, social/cultural change and trends, Shermichael spotlights the work that must be done to sustain a political and cultural system that embraces rationality over emotions, while still being empathetic to change in our society.

Race in the 21st century

Despite electing the first African-American president of the United States, we find ourselves more polarized and divided than we ever imagined. As the need to come together as a nation becomes more and more important, Shermichael’s unique perspective emphasizes our shared commonalities and the importance that we look beyond race to focus on the things that unite us.

Conservatism and minorities

Conservatism finds itself in an interesting place, fighting to hold on to the values that define us as a society, while attempting to find its relevance in a ever changing society. With a shrinking base and an inability to compete politically with minority voters, the need for outreach continues to become more and more important. Minorities share many of the core values of conservatism, but despite this fact, many minorities don’t vote for republican candidates. Shermichael explores the reasons for this trend and what republicans can do to change it.
