UNDATED -- Wednesday marks 100 days in office for President Barack Obama.

He may be enjoying strong approval ratings in much of the country, but Oklahomans are split.

The latest Sooner Poll shows 48% of Oklahomans disapprove, 47% approve.

The same goes for his handling of the economy. Forty-seven percent approve of his work on that issue so far, 48% disapprove.

Oklahoma's disapproval of federal bailout money is more clear-cut.

Fifty-one percent say they are less likely to have confidence in a local financial institution that accepts federal TARP money. Only 20% say they are more likely to have confidence in institutions that accept the money.
