The vast majority of Arizona Republicans want Gov. Jan Brewer (R) to veto the anti-gay discrimination bill sitting on her desk, according to a new poll

The poll, commissioned by a GOP consulting firm, found that 57 percent of Republican voters in the state want the bill to be vetoed, while 28 percent said the governor should sign it, the Arizona Capitol Times reported.

Brewer has not said what she’ll do with the bill, though leaks from her allies suggest she’ll veto it. She’s also under pressure from the business community to reject the legislation.

The poll, conducted Monday, surveyed 802 GOP voters. It has a margin or error of 4 percentage points.
