Paul Gronke

Paul Gronke is a professor of political science at Reed College. Paul attended Oregon City High School and PSU before leaving Oregon for points east (Chicago, Ann Arbor, and Durham NC), and returning to Oregon in 2001. Gronke specializes in American politics, statistical methodology, and survey research; his recent research focuses on non-precinct place voting. His self-described political leanings are a "DLC Democrat," earning him a few brickbats from the peanut gallery. A more apt description might be gadfly and skeptic--too many years and too much data have led Paul to rely on empirical data and outcome as much as good intentions to help him guide his political beliefs.
