A more likely scenario would be that the election's close enough so that Republicans can claim that the results are invalid and contest the election in various states, creating a constitutional crisis by refusing to accept the results. The results become a protracted legal and political dispute which ends up ultimately going to the House, where they would probably win because of a majority of state delegations. This couldn't happen if Trump lost by 10-15% in the popular vote and the Dem winner ends up with 350-400 EC delegates, but if the Democrat wins by one or two states and a few thousand votes in those states, we could be headed for an 1876-style crisis.
