The Southern slave states would have slavery and this would give them more power in Congress. This also allowed them to harvest crops faster and have more "property".
The slaves would also give us more income form the crops, thus giving us more money.
The Southern slave states thought that it’s popular sovereignty to decide whether the people want the state to be a free or slave state. They also wanted states’ right and weak federal government, so that states could govern themselves.
The Southern slave states didn’t care if there was another state was admitted as long as they had another slaves state. The compromise would benefit both sides, and anti slavery people would be calm for awhile
The compromise will benefit both sides. slavery and anti-slavery.
