The auto bailout bill is set to die in the Senate Thursday night after the collapse of talks aimed at fashioning a compromise between Democrats and Republicans, sources said.

A cloture vote - requiring 60 votes to end debate and move to a vote on the actual bill - will be held shortly and is expected to fail.
