I firmly believe that Republicans do better further down the ticket because it is easier to detect vote fraud, the smaller the voter pool. On a nationwide, or statewide basis it is easier to conceal uncounted votes due to the difficulty of voters to track their candidate's support. If votes were siphoned off in heavily democrat districts, the Republican voters probably wouldn't notice that the margin was larger than it really was, boosting statewide margins in favor of the democrat Senate or presidential candidate. Done in "swing states" this could, and I believe did, swing the nationwide and statewide victories.
