Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) announced that a vote of no confidence in U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be held in the Senate today: http://www.opencongress.org/blog

If all senators who have actually lost confidence in Attorney General Gonzales voted their conscience, this vote would be unanimous."

"However, the President will certainly exert pressure to support the Attorney General, his longtime friend. We will soon see where peoples loyalties lie."

Meanwhile, a Washington Post-ABC News Poll asked 1,205 adults whether they approve or disapprove of the way Gonzales has handled the controversial firing of nine federal prosecutors. 52 percent said that they disapprove; another 23 percent said they had no opinion.
