State governments have Governors that act as the head of state executive branches.  Explain why the position of governor is institutionally weak by and large with limited formal powers. What are the disadvantages of having a governor position with less power than the legislative branch?  How does this affect the governance of states?

The position of governor is weaker than that of state legislative branches because a governor cannot make laws-- he or she can only veto or approve them.  Disadvantages to a less powerful executive branch include the possibility of in-fighting among the legislative branch crippling government.
