Republicans have three strategies to try to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the party's presidential nominee, but none of them are the one most likely to work, says conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh outlined the three proposals on his Wednesday showA) waiting for Trump to implode, B) uniting behind Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and C) splitting the delegates so Trump doesn’t have the 1,237 needed to secure the nomination on the first vote.

He suggested uniting, instead, behind Cruz "would be their smartest move, but they will not do that. … Rubio is the desired candidate because that's where the moneyed people want to go. He's closer to the establishment, this whole Gang of Eight business."

Trump fans see him as owning the "outsider" label, Limbaugh said, but added, "Cruz is more of an outsider than you know in terms of the way the Republican establishment disdains him, doesn't like him, fears him, hates him."

Cruz represents what the establishment does not want, Limbaugh said. "They don't want conservatism in the party. They don't want evangelicals prominent in the party. They don't want anybody talking about Judeo-Christian ethics and morality and conservatism. They're trying to sweep that out of the party ever since Goldwater."
