Actually, that is a good point.
In referendums, do the Swiss vote as individuals or do they just follow what their party recommends?
I tend to follow the CVP when I do not have opinion about certain issues. Concerning this particular poll I wanted to follow their positions.

But it seems when emotional issues such as the question of today or the vote on the internment of sexual criminals, people tend to vote with their guts and disregard their political affiliation.

Most do as individuals, which generally is a good thing. The bad thing is that many follow the hollow stomach, and if angry vote NO to everything.

I've had to delete a couple of posts here because they were off topic. Please keep the topic in this thread to the Swiss immigration system, not how the Swiss vote and why one may or may not have voted. Thanks
