A day of coalition talks makes clear Netanyahu has considerable advantage in forging right-wing government.
Voters who decided to vote Kadima instead of Labor will wake up to hear that Livni is courting far-rightist.
Netanyahu is asking himself how the devil he lost about 10 seats in the polls in less than two months.
Whatever Livni proposes to Lieberman, Netanyahu will offer him more, and visa versa.
New survey gives leftist bloc 54 seats, rightist bloc 66 seats, out of 120; Lieberman's far-right party surges.
Should Kadima win most votes, it plans to seek authority to form government, even if right-wing bloc is bigger.
Polls show even a few seats moving from Likud to Yisrael Beiteinu could put Kadima in lead.
Uncomfortable with a rightist coalition, Netanyahu's goal is to add Labor or Kadima to his party.
