‘The Politician’ trailer: Blood and backstabbing with Ben Platt

The trailer for Ryan Murphy’s splashy new Netflix show is gunning for viewers’ votes Monday.

“The Politician” follows posh-named young man Payton Hobart (Tony-winning “Dear Evan Hansen” star Ben Platt, 25) as he runs in various elections throughout his life — from high school to the White House.

The eight-episode series marks the first production to emerge from the “American Horror Story” creator’s $300 million deal with Netflix.

The show, co-created with “Glee” collaborator Brad Falchuck, appears to be packed with Murphy’s signature drama and splash, as the trailer shows.

Police lights and blood are flashed in the trailer, as is a tense high school election showdown featuring accusations of bigotry and homophobia.

Murphy described it to The Hollywood Reporter as “wealthy people behaving badly.”

The show also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and “American Horror Story” alums Jessica Lange and Dylan McDermott.

“The Politician” premieres Sept. 27 on Netflix.
