The implication was clear enough and right in line with the tone of Trump's closing argument to Republican voters.

According to Silver's FiveThirtyEight, Republicans now have a 4 in 5 chance (81%; down by over 4% in just the last few days) of maintaining control of the Senate, giving the Democrats just a 1 in 5 chance (19%) of taking over.
