Oklahomans are pretty happy with Mary Fallin.
According to a poll published on the New York Times Monday, 65 percent of the state approves of the job Gov. Fallin has done thus far, the second-highest number among governors up for re-election in 2014.
Only 23 percent disapproved of the state's first female governor, conversely among the lowest of the 32 eligible for a second term.

Fallin's time as governor has not come without opposition. On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against her on behalf of local satirical news site The Lost Ogle, citing an alleged violation of the Oklahoma Open Records Act.
