Stanley was educated at The Judd School, a grammar school in Tonbridge, Kent. He then attended Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied modern history. He graduated from the University of Cambridge with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree (later promoted to MA (Cantab) as per tradition), a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. His doctoral thesis was on Edward M. Kennedy's role in the US Democratic Party in the 1980s, which was published in 2010 as his first solo book, Kennedy vs. Carter: The 1980 Battle for the Democratic Party's Soul.
At Cambridge he was active in student journalism, contributing to student newspaper Varsity. Stanley also unsuccessfully ran for a sabbatical post on Cambridge University Students' Union, standing in 2007 for Welfare Officer. His manifesto consisted of a handwritten note simply reading "This is hand written because I was too drunk to write a manifesto. There is no better testament to my character."
Stanley held lectureships at the University of Sussex in 2008–09 and Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2009–11, and from 2011 to 2012 he was an associate member of the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford. He is the recipient of a Leverhulme Trust Grant.
In November 2011, he organised a conference called History: What is it good for?, which generated some controversy after one of the speakers, David Starkey, said that the national curriculum in British schools overlooks British culture.
Stanley is a columnist and leader writer for the Daily Telegraph. and regular contributor to CNN. He reports on American politics and culture, including the 2016 election campaigns. He contributes to History Today, and Literary Review and has written pieces for The Guardian and The Spectator.
He wrote and presented a documentary for the BBC entitled Family Guys? What Sitcoms Say About America Now, which was broadcast in October 2012. He is also an occasional pundit on BBC News, CNBC, Sky News and Channel 4 News.
Stanley has presented Radio 4's Thought For The Day, is a contributor on The Moral Maze and has appeared several times on the panel of BBC's Question Time.
Stanley joined the British Labour Party at the age of 15. He was Chair of Cambridge University Labour Club in 2003–04, and stood as the Labour candidate for his home constituency of Sevenoaks at the 2005 general election, where he came third. He has since distanced himself from the Labour Party, and has been arguing in support of the US Republican Party.
Stanley was a strong supporter of Britain's campaign to leave the European Union.
In October 2012, Stanley stated he was "raised a good Baptist boy". Later, he considered himself to be an Anglican, beginning around "one glorious summer" in 2002, and was baptised as an Anglican in Little St. Mary's, Cambridge, in New Year 2003. He subsequently aligned himself with the Church of England's Anglo-Catholic wing, before converting to Roman Catholicism.
