How To Destroy A Man With A Haircut

Opposition researchers are the campaign operatives whose job is to dig into a candidate’s past and find things that voters won’t like. They take that information, and try to turn it into a story about why you should or shouldn't vote for someone.This week, we take a look at how that process works, where that information goes, and how oppo in 2016 is different from oppo in past elections.Guests: Opposition researchers Shauna Daly and Joe Pounder, political consultant Rodell Mollineau, Dominique Mednick—an undecided voter who lives in Florida, and BuzzFeed's Editor-In-Chief Ben Smith.
