Why was popular sovereignty so well-supported as a just and fair way to settle the slavery question? It seemed to have worked well in the Compromise of 1850. It allowed citizens of a territory to decide the slave issue. It allowed Congress to have some input into the political events in territories. It gave people a chance to let the Federal government decide for them.

Popular sovereignty was well supported because it allowed the local citizens of a territory to decide if slavery was to be allowed or illegal. Stephen A. Douglas pushed for popular sovereignty during the 1840's.
