It looks like Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed. Republicans have the votes.

Via Fox News:

The Senate resumed debate on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in the morning, and voting is now underway. 
The final vote comes after Republicans tore up the Senate’s voting rules to allow President Donald Trump’s nominee to ascend to the high court over furious Democratic objections.
Democrats denounced the GOP’s use of what both sides dubbed the “nuclear option” to put Gorsuch on the court. They called it an epic power grab that would further corrode politics in Congress, the courts and the nation. Many Republicans bemoaned the rule change but blamed Democrats for pushing them to it. 
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declared he did so to “restore norms” and get past what he called an “unprecedented” Democratic filibuster. 
Republicans succeeded in making the change on a party-line vote Thursday afternoon.
