A Postmortem on the 2012


 What Happened?

Dr. Edwin Dover
Political Science Department
Western Oregon University
On Friday, November 9, Salem City Club welcomes back Ed Dover, Professor of Political Science at Western Oregon University, to speak on the 2012 national elections. The talk will focus on three topics:
  • The outcome, meaning, and long term significance of the presidential election. 
  • The congressional elections and their relationship to the presidential outcome.   
  • The independence of the Oregon elections from national patterns. 
Dover has taught political science for 35 years with the last 25 having been at Western Oregon University. Prior to joining the WOU staff in September 1987 he taught at the University of Wyoming, the University of Colorado, and the University of Tennessee at Martin.
He teaches a variety of classes in American government and politics and public policy and administration.  Some of the leading ones are Presidential Elections, Political Parties and Pressure Groups, Congress and the Presidency, Public Personnel Administration, Governmental Budgeting and Constitutional Law. 

The analysis of American presidential elections been his primary research area for many years and he has written six books on this topic since coming to Oregon.  The most recent, On Message: Television Advertising by the Presidential Candidates in Election 2008, focuses on the personal and political narratives the various candidates employed in their advertising during the nomination and general election campaigns.
Dover has been active in faculty governance at WOU, serving as a member and chair of numerous committees.   He was president of the faculty union, the WOU Federation of Teachers, from 1989 to 1996 and a member of every union collective bargaining team in contract negotiations between 1991 and 2011. 
He is married to Molly Mayhead, Professor of Communication Studies at WOU.
