As of 8:50pmEST, 57 will support and 41 will oppose Alito. Snowe and Landrieu are the only Senators still undecided.

CPAN is showing Bayh and Dorgan as no votes

Tom

Great site. Thanks for doing this.

Luke

CA you've done a great job with this.

You may want to start a list of those supporting a filibuster and those against. Could get interesting but I personally think about 30-32 will be the upper limit of those supporting.

Wow. That's John Kerry leadership. Wait until the 11th hour, all the Republicans in the plus column, along with three Dems, then start to rattle the saber about a filibuster. True leadership!

Adam Graham

Byrd is in the for Column as well. Lieberman against.

Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., today became the third Democrat to announce he will vote to confirm Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court. Byrd announced his decision in a floor speech.

WSJ (http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110007811) counts Jim Jeffords (I-VT), Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), and Daniel Inouye (D-HI) in the "No" column.

Mary Landreau is probably pacing up and down for days now because she knows that going with her party votes against Alito means going against the overwellming majority of the views of her constituents here in our state.

Bayh will vote against just like he did on Condi. He has to position left for primaries.

Ben Keeler

Good work here. Thanks for keeping everyone up to date.

George Templeton

Well if you add the R's that aren't committed but likely to vote for Alito (every R except Voinovich, Collins, Snowe, Chafee) then it comes to 51 aye votes for Alito. Looking pretty good for a sane Supreme Court. Thank God.

America will have it's monarchy. Choke on it DemocRATS.

Nothing can stop this confirmation. Pay particular attention to McCain---his endorsement will bring enough support from the so-called "Gang of 14" to carry this through. Judge Alito is such a common-sense confirmation, extremists like Kennedy are really going to be made to look foolish.

Intrope

Another suggestion: could you mark the gang of 14 on this list? In some ways, they are the most critical (for now).

California Yankee

Prolito, Thanks for the tip.

prolito

mccain is also clearly in the "for alito" column. see mccain.senate.gov: “I will vote to confirm Judge Alito, who demonstrated in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he will be an intelligent, fair, and open-minded justice who respects the judiciary’s important but limited role of interpreting the law.”

California Yankee

Luke, Thanks for the suggestion.

Luke

Just a suggestion, but have you thought of different colors for the "for/against" positions? Would make it easier to read.

The gray is kind of blah.
