While it was Republican candidates who announced the suspension of their candidacies following the Indiana primary, hundreds took to Twitter to call for another candidate to drop out — Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Clinton lost to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by more than 5 percentage points in the Hoosier State Tuesday night, but she did receive at least 38 delegates compared to the 44 Sanders received. Still, many Democrats took to Twitter, using the #DropOutHillary hashtag, to not only proclaim that they "feel the Bern" but also to demand that Clinton get out of the race.

Even an Anonymous Twitter account seemed to take part in the hashtag.
Clinton leads Sanders nationally by nearly 5 points, according to Real Clear Politics' aggregated polling data.
