The #NeverTrump movement is all but dead. Following a drubbing of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the Indiana primary on Tuesday night, Donald Trump rose from a GOP front-runner to a GOP damn-near-certain nominee. And then Cruz and Kasich decided to drop out of the race.

That leaves #NeverTrumpers in a bind. Some have concluded that presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would be a better choice than Trump in November. Others have thrown their hands up in disgust. And a growing camp has come around to the idea that, well, #MaybeTrump.

Here’s what some prominent #NeverTrump people had to say on Twitter in the aftermath of the Indiana bloodbath.

More than a few #NeverTrump people have grown even more dedicated to the cause since the Indiana vote. The number of signatures on NeverTrump.com has eclipsed 30,000 as of early Wednesday afternoon. More than 1,000 of those came after last night’s election results.
