Rev. ().Author: Robert A. Sedler. The popular sovereignty principle is one of the underlying ideas of the United States Constitution, and it argues that the source of governmental power (sovereignty) lies with the people (popular). This tenet is based on the concept of the social contract, the idea that government should be for the benefit of its the government is not protecting the people, says the Declaration of.

Instead, they were set forth later in the Bill of Rights, comprised of the first ten amendments to the Constitution.
