Cuomo to Klobuchar: Why Can't Democrats Pack Stadiums The Way Trump Does?


Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is asked why Democrats are unable to pack arenas with supporters like President Trump in an interview Tuesday night with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

CHRIS CUOMO, CNN: Let's call it more MAGA or MAGA 2.0, whatever you want, the Amway Center in Orlando tonight is filled with a throng of cheering Trump supporters as this President tries to generate enthusiasm for his re-election bid.

Quinnipiac today shows him trailing multiple top Democratic candidates in crucial battleground states. But remember, he was trailing in the polls in key states last time, and won.

Amy Klobuchar is trailing too. The Senator just unveiled the actions that she would take in her first 100 days in Office. She joins us now. Always good to see you, Senator.

SEN. AMY KLOBUCHAR (D-MN): Thank you, Chris.

CUOMO: So, one simple question. Why don't the Democrats pack stadiums the way this President does?

KLOBUCHAR: Oh, but we do. We just have a lot of stadiums we're packing at the same time with so many people running.

I think you've seen our candidates throughout the years generate that energy. And you certainly saw it in 2018 when we had took back the House, made it the People's House again, number of Governors races in key states that we won.

And we had a lot of excitement, high voter turnout, young people turning out like they've never turned out before in a midterm. I am not one bit worried about the excitement on our side. We just have to unite behind a candidate, and that's what these debates are all about.
