Opposition & Candidate Research

The team at Democracy Partners includes some of the toughest, most creative and experienced opposition/candidate researchers, and analysts in America. The foundation of great campaign messaging is great research.

Great research begins with a skilled investigation of public records, financial materials and news media; integration of data gathered from personal sources, and creative use of video trackers. However, the most thorough collection of data is meaningless if it is not subjected to skilled analysis.

Our team includes leaders with decades of experience making research relevant to the dynamic world of real campaigns – people who know the right questions to ask, and understand the political implications of the answers.
