In a recent online poll the New York Times asked readers to choose Barack Obama’s cabinet.
Ron Paul ranked third for the position of Treasury Secretary. He was surpassed only by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul A. Volcker and former Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers.
Ron Paul also reached the Top 10 for Defense Secretary (#5), Attorney General (#6), Secretary of Homeland Security (#6), and Secretary of State (#7).
Considering that Ron Paul appears on none of the drop-down selection menus offered by the New York Times, these impressive results document Ron Paul’s continuing popularity. All votes Ron Paul received were submitted by New York Times readers typing in his name.
(The poll is now closed.)
