ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Gov. Arne Carlson, bucking the drive of ultraconservative and religious political activists to oust him in next Tuesday's Republican primary, should take heart in the polls. A prominent one, in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, has him beating his challenger on the party's right, Allen Quist, by a whopping 64 percent to 26 percent.Such a result not only would comfort political leaders here and around the country concerned about the increasing influence of the religious right in the GOP, but it also would propel Carlson into a solid position to be re-elected in November.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press puts the moderate, free-wheeling Mr. Carlson running far ahead -- 64 percent to 26 percent.
