I'll spare you the nitty-gritty, but suffice to say that three separate polls tonight record growing leads for the Tories – of 7, 7 and 10 points, respectively.  One of the 7-point leads is from the YouGov Daily Tracker, which has been hovering around the 4 point mark for the past few weeks. 

You could argue that we're still operating more or less within the margin of error.  That's true.  But throw in the polls from the weekend, and you'd be hard-pressed not to conclude that the tide is turning, at least momentarily, in Cameron & Co.'s favour.  Either way, Tory folk around Westminster certainly seem more relaxed than they have been for months.
