The Politician stars Ben Platt as Payton Hobart, a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, CA, who has known since age 7 that he's going to be president of the United States. But first he’ll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School. To get elected student body president, secure a spot at Harvard and stay on his singular path to success, Payton will have to outsmart his ruthless classmates without sacrificing his own morality and carefully crafted image.
