The state's constitutions tend to be a lot more detailed about the relationship between the state government and the people than the federal constitution is. Also, states cons…titutions can have slight variations from state to state and preside over single states rather than an entire country.
Constitutional law is the highest form of law in the land, which all other forms of law (statutes, administrative rules, etc.) must comply with. Constitutions can be changed, …it does require more effort. To amend the Federal Constitution, a proposed amendment must pass both chambers of congress with a 2/3 vote and then be approved by 2/3 of the states. Statutes meanwhile can be generally changed simply by a majority vote of the legislature.
State and federal governments are similar in a lot of ways. Namely,they both pass laws that are decided on by elected representatives.
Are you kidding me? :l 1) This is the Federal and State constitution book...you "need" to know this stuff and 2) Do you expect us to go through every question in this book an…d answer it? You need to be specific.
yes. They are very different, yet so alike.
Did the 1789 constitution allow states to position their constitution above the federal constitution?
No. The Supremacy Clause of the Constitution (Article Six, Clause 2) states that the Constitution (and, by extension, federal law) are the law of last resort, and thus, that n…o state law (or constitution) can supercede them.

they both have three branches
