DELIGHTED: Theresa May is predicted to beat rival Jeremy Corbyn today
Election boffins dashed Jezza’s hopes of a hung parliament with the latest clutch of polls giving the Conservatives a lead as big as 12 points or as small as five.
The Guardian’s ICM survey put the Tories on 46% – well ahead of Labour who are lagging behind on 34%.
A ComRes poll also gave the Prime Minister a boost giving her party a 10-point lead.

CHUFFED: Theresa May is understood to have secured half of UKIP voters
The survey also predicted the collapse of smaller parties with many supporters turning to either Labour, or the Conservatives.
Half of UKIP voters told pollsters they will switch to the Tories, lending about two million ballots to Mrs may’s share of the vote.
Tim Farron’s Liberal Democrats supposed surge appeared to grind to a halt and is haemorrhaging voters to both major parties, with two fifths claiming they will cast their ballot for either Labour or the Conservatives.

NERVY: The recent polls put the Tories ahead of Jeremy Corbyn
Should the ComRes prediction be replicated it would mean Mrs May will secure a 74-seat majority.
Kantor Public, however, gave the Tories a more modest lead of just five points – putting the party on 43%, Labour on 38%, the Lib Dems on 10% and UKIP on 5%.
YouGov, who predicted a hung parliament, scaled back the public’s support for Jezza in a survey for the Times and put the Conservatives on 42% and Labour on 35%.
