Which scenario best illustrates the principle of popular sovereignty?

Answers

The correct answer is D. A senator holds town hall meetings to find out how citizens think she should vote on gun control legislation.

Popular sovereignty is the principle that says that the authority of the government in a state is created and maintained by the consent and the approval of its people. The way to do so is by election. People elect their representatives and then demand actions to be taken. Like in the case of town hall meetings to listen to the voice of the people who voted for the senator. People put her in power so she needs to stay in permanent contact to find out what is best for the citizens.

Option D. The following scenario best illustrates the principle of popular sovereignty: Members of Congress vote for laws that the majority of Americans support.

Explanation:

The term popular sovereignty refers to a political doctrine that states that power is vested in the people and that those chosen to govern acts as trustees of that power, therefore they must exercise in conformity with the general will. Therefore the scenarios that best illustrates this concept would be the members of Congress, who are elected and chosen by the popular vote, voting for laws that the majority of Americans support, in representation of that power given to them in the elections.
