In addition, "health care safety nets are eroding" in the state, the Times reports.

A recent poll of 500 likely Democratic voters in the state found that, when asked about the "single most important issue in determining" the candidate that they would select, 20% cited health care -- the issue most mentioned after the economy, which 21% cited.

The poll, conducted by Research 2000 for the Reno Gazette-Journal, had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points.
