You really just have to look at real life. How do powerful despots get and hold power? Surely it's not always because they're the biggest and baddest. Often it's about manipulating people's greed and desires for power, promising them things, gathering a devoted following and having them be your muscle to do the things you want done. Hutts are connected, they have a long tradition of underworld dealings, and they probably pay well. Money buys loyalty, so does providing for your followers' vices.

(Insert Congress joke here).
