Back in March, a Gallup poll showed that "a sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination." If the general election was between McCain and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), 28 percent of voters who supporter Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said they would vote for McCain.

Now that the Clinton campaign is ending, millions of voters have to decide whether they'll support the presumptive Democratic nominee, Obama, or his Republican challenger, McCain. A vocal part of that group has said that they won't vote in the general election. Another perhaps-equally-vocal part of that group has said that they will vote for McCain.

If you supported Clinton, who do you plan to vote for? Is your vote up for grabs? What can McCain and Obama do to get your vote? And what do they have to do to make you an enthusiastic supporter?
