<p>As the chances of Republicans gaining control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm election remained high, <em>Meet the Press</em> moderator Chuck Todd appeared on Friday&#39;s NBC <em>Today</em> to pour cold water on the possibility: <strong>&quot;...definitely feels like a hold-your-nose election....talking to voters that I did, they&#39;d like to punish the President&#39;s party without rewarding the Republicans. And in many cases, they&#39;re sort of sitting on their hands, they&#39;re not sure what to do....They&#39;re probably leaning against the President, but they&#39;re not happy about it.&quot;</strong></p>

<p>Fill-in co-host Hoda Kotb teed up Todd&#39;s pessimism: &quot;Now the President&#39;s numbers are low, Congress&#39;s numbers are low. Do you think people are actually going to want to go out to the polls, are they going to be holding their nose, picking the lesser of two evils? What are we going to see?&quot;</p>
