When is a 16% margin a narrow one? When it's the Washington Post describing support for same-sex marriage:
Public opinion remains narrowly against same-sex marriage. A Newsweek poll in December found 55 percent of people opposed to it, compared with 39 percent who support it. A scant majority (51 percent) of people ages 18 to 29 back same-sex marriage.
Whatever one thinks about the issue, the margin opposed to it is huge.
