Baio is a registered Republican and has described his politics as conservative. He campaigned for Ronald Reagan in his youth and attended Reagan's state funeral, when he was seated near former UK Prime Minister Lady Thatcher. He was quoted by the New York Daily News as saying "President Reagan made me feel proud to be an American. Today, I feel sadness."
More recently, Baio endorsed Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney in 2012 and Donald Trump in 2016. Also in 2016, he spoke at the opening night of the Republican National Convention.
In an interview with Ashley Webster, Baio described President Barack Obama as being "either dumb, a Muslim, or a Muslim sympathizer, and I don't think he's dumb".
