PlotStephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) is the Junior Campaign Manager for Mike Morris (George Clooney), Governor of Pennsylvania and a Democratic presidential candidate, competing against Arkansas Senator Ted Pullman (Michael Mantell). The candidates are campaigning in Ohio. Both campaigns are attempting to enlist the endorsement of North Carolina Democratic Senator Franklin Thompson (Jeffrey Wright), who controls 356 convention delegates, enough to clinch the nomination for either candidate.
After a debate at Miami University, Meyers is asked by Pullman's Campaign Manager Tom Duffy (Paul Giamatti) to attend a secret meeting. Meyers calls his boss, Senior Campaign Manager Paul Zara (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who doesn't answer. Meyers leaves a message that something important has come up. Duffy offers Meyers a position in Pullman's campaign, an offer Meyers refuses. Zara calls Meyers back and asks what was important, but Meyers says it was nothing to worry about.
Meyers starts a sexual relationship with Molly Stearns (Evan Rachel Wood), an intern for Morris' campaign and daughter of Jack Stearns (Gregory Itzin), the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Late one night when Molly is in his room sleeping, Meyers discovers that Morris is trying to call her. She and Morris had a brief sexual liaison at a campaign stop in Iowa several weeks previously, and Molly is now pregnant with Morris' baby. Meyers helps her with money for an abortion but warns her not to tell anybody. Meyers also fires Molly from the campaign. He drives her to the clinic, but does not pick her up afterwards.
Meyers admits to Zara that he met with Duffy, who told Meyers that Pullman will offer Thompson the position of Secretary of State, guaranteeing his victory. Ida (Marisa Tomei), a reporter for the New York Times, reveals that an anonymous source leaked his encounter with Duffy to her and that she will publish unless Meyers gives her all of the information about his meeting with Thompson. Meyers comes to Zara for help. Zara reveals that he leaked the meeting to Ida and fires Meyers from the campaign for showing a "lack of loyalty" in meeting with Duffy.
Meyers offers his services to Duffy, who admits he only met with Meyers in order to influence his opponent's operation. He suspected that Meyers would tell Zara about the meeting which would lead Zara to remove Meyers from Morris' campaign. Should this happen, Duffy correctly surmised, the Morris campaign would be weakened and, as a result, Pullman's would be strengthened. Before dismissing Meyers, Duffy encourages the younger man to quit the business before he becomes a cynic. Meanwhile, Molly learns that Meyers has been fired and fearing that he will reveal her pregnancy, takes a fatal drug overdose.
Meyers decides to go on the offensive. Unbeknownst to the Morris campaign, he meets with Thompson to arrange for Thompson's delegates in exchange for a spot on the Morris ticket. He then uses Molly's phone to call Morris, inducing the candidate to meet him. Meyers confronts Morris, telling him that he will expose the affair with Molly if Morris does not accept his demands: fire Zara, place Meyers in charge of the campaign, and offer Thompson a Cabinet position. Morris resists, but Meyers claims that he has a suicide note found in Molly's room. After a back-and-forth in which either or both men appear to bluff, Morris relents and meets all of Meyer's demands. Later at Molly's funeral, Zara compliments Meyers on his skill in using secrets to his advantage. With Thompson's endorsement (and delegates), Morris becomes the nominee despite losing the Ohio primary election.
Now Senior Campaign Manager, Meyers attends a remote TV interview with the voice of John King in his ear. After brushing off Ida, the movie ends as he takes his seat for a television interview inside Xavier University's Cintas Center and is asked for insight as to how the events surrounding the primary unfolded.
SynopsisStephen Meyers est l'adjoint du directeur de campagne du gouverneur de Pennsylvanie, Mike Morris, candidat à l’investiture démocrate aux élections primaires. Contrairement aux deux directeurs de campagne, Paul Zara pour Morris et Tom Duffy pour son rival (le sénateur de l’Arkansas Ted Pullman), qui sont cyniques et blasés, Stephen est encore idéaliste. Il est persuadé que le candidat pour qui il travaille, au-delà de son programme politique, possède les vertus qui feront de lui un bon Président.
La course pour remporter les voix des grands électeurs de l’Ohio s’annonce serrée. Le gouverneur Morris refuse les compromissions, tandis que le camp adverse manœuvre pour rallier Meyers à sa cause… ou pour le discréditer. D’autre part, ce dernier commence une liaison amoureuse avec Molly Stearns, stagiaire au bureau de campagne et fille du président du Democratic National Committee.
