Shield Political Research combines an unrivaled fluency in public records with the narrative tools of journalism to provide research that is incisive, comprehensive and primed for use in campaign literature, public opinion polls, lobbying materials and earned media opportunities.
Shield provides opposition research to state, local and federal campaigns; nonprofits operating in the public sphere; and certain corporate clients.
We also provide campaigns with self-research — “counter-oppo” — to determine their own vulnerabilities.
Additionally, we can perform social media checks on new hires, to ensure there are no embarrassing tweets, posts or comments that could potentially harm the campaign.
And through our corporate research we offer skills not found in the typical workplace to help companies that find themselves in a battle in the public arena and need to arm themselves with information.
