Bin Laden might win in an election in Saudi Arabia right now because everyone has been educated at schools taught by Clerics who teach the extremist forms of Islam. The great thing about democracy is it leads to freedom of ideas and the people can be educated how they want(at least in theory). That sort of freedom of ideas leads to a broadening of the mind probably driving more people away from the type of Islam that is leads to the blowing up of buildings. If everyone in America was forced to be taught by the fundamentalist Christians and the only book we were allowed to read was the Bible (or an off shout of writings praising the Bible's teachings) most people would probably be voting Pat Robertson for President.
