Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee as Ted Cruz and John Kasich drop out of the presidential race.

Some Republicans burn voter registration cards, leave GOP after Trump's win in Indiana

After Texas Sen. Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign Tuesday night, several Republicans burned their voter registration cards and left the GOP. Many who tweeted videos, photos and statements against the party were members of the conservative media and political strategists.

Before sources confirmed that Ohio Gov. John Kasich would drop out of the race Wednesday morning, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted Tuesday night that Donald Trump was the presumptive nominee.

To officially clinch the nomination, Donald Trump now needs 190 more delegates to reach the necessary 1,237. The next Republican primaries occur on May 10 in Nebraska and West Virginia.
