By the time of AotC, the Republic has not faced a full-scale war for a long time. Probably the citizens and the senators are so terrified by it that they will do everything to regain peace. And Palpy, in the general public, has the image of a benevolent leader, he seems to be quite popular. And if the price for having peace is making him total leader for lifetime (Emperor), then they will pay it.
I think it was much more complicated to become Chancelor and initiate the war and all that stuff, than afterwards just giving that totalitarian state, the still so-called Republic the name it actually deserves since the end of AotC: the Empire.
