In interviews, Shuler has stated he is a Democrat because of the influence of his grandmother, who taught him that the Democratic Party had always fought for the poor and disenfranchised.

Shuler is fairly conservative and has voted with Republicans on key issues. In 2008 he was instrumental in passing the FISA bill granting telecommunications companies immunity from prosecution for their involvement in warrantless wiretapping of American citizens, including his sending a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi encouraging her not to fight the bill. He is against abortion rights and favors gun rights and conservative fiscal policy as part of the "Blue Dog Coalition," a group of moderate and conservative Democrats. He also takes a hard line on illegal immigration.
