Very true and that is why, in my opinion, referenda should be held only very rarely and only for very great matters of state. It might even by wise to have supermajority requirement to pass a proposal. Nonetheless, I fall on the side that while the people may be fallible, one man selected by birth should not have an absolute veto over the democratically expressed will of the people.
