Doom and gloom somewhat abated for the moment

After a weekend of black depression when I feared the Tories might be pulling away, my equilibrium is somewhat restored by today's two polls. YouGov has the Tories at 34%, with the LibDems on 29% and Labour on 28%; ICM has the Tories on 33%, with both the LibDems and Labour on 28%.

A Tory lead of 5 percentage points simply doesn't cut it in terms of delivering an absolute majority, while neither Labour nor LibDems are slipping back towards wipeout territory. So game on, as the more excitable sports commentators are wont to say.
