Go back and read the Constitution, it simply says majority but does not state a number. During the debate of the framing of the Constitution 2/3 of the members was considered too onerous but a simple plurality (51) was considered too few and could lead to abuse. Therefore no number was set just the word majority was left and it was left to the Senate to make it part of it's rules. What do the Senate rules say is a number for a quorum?
