After a deluge of state/media propaganda, the ”people get their minds right”.
That’s what happened, in an age where there is open collusion between the Leftist media and political organs of government, anyone taking a dissenting view will be trashed unrelentingly. You only have to look at the headline The Local gave the story to see how open they are about the collusion.
NOTE: Immigration quotas are a logical mechanism to help calibrate the response to society’s need in skilled workers, labelling it ”xenophobic” is classic scare mongering and state demonization of the opposition, which is helped along by the willing fake media.
Swiss media relieved over immigration vote

Several editorialists saw Sunday’s referendum result as a swing of the pendulum against the decision approved by voters on February 9th to back unspecified immigrant quotas.
In the latest vote, more than 74 percent of voters rejected the Ecopop proposal to limit annual net immigration to 0.2 percent of the population to slow population growth, limit urban sprawl and protect Switzerland’s environment.
Opponents, including the federal government, argued the proposal was xenophobic and would harm the country’s economy by reducing access to skilled workers it needs from abroad and cannot supply domestically.
The overwhelming rejection shows that Swiss voters have not lost sight of “how important it is to have an appropriate relationship with the European Union,” an editorial in Der Bund said.
