The peoples voice comes first

What is it?

Popular Sovereignty is were the people have a say in how the government is ran. If the government gets out of control the people have the right to over throw it. Popular Sovereignty isn't like monarchy and or Communism since in those types of government the people do not have a say it is just controlled by one leader. It is like Democracy since the people have a say in how the government is ran.
