Positive question: was Rubio the Condorcet winner of the Republican Presidential primary? I don't have the data to say, but it seems at least plausible.

Normative question: Should not the Condorcet winner (if one exists) be the actual winner? (This isn't special pleading; I didn't vote for Rubio in Texas.) Why not let voters somehow rank candidates on their ballots?

I suspect Cruz would be the winner using approval voting.

Cruz is also a plausible Condorcet winner. I'm unsure who would have won a Rubio vs. Cruz race. I feel more confident asserting that Trump is the Condorcet loser among the last four: Cruz, Kasich, Rubio, Trump.
