Can Democrats Win?

I ask this question because I am concerned that even if the Democrats actually get more votes, Republican lawyers will throw the whole thing into the courts and the results will be overturned by Republican appointed judges. I usually don't like conspiracy theories, but the rhetoric is already building up with Republicans complaining of foreign voters and voter fraud, including voting the dead. They clearly have a well-thought out strategy if they lose.

If this worst-case scenario happens, meaning Kerry wins the electoral college but the election is overturned in the courts, we may be seeing the beginning of the end of democracy in America. That sounds terrible and ridiculous, but is it unrealistic?
