Monday was incredibly quiet. Too quiet, really, for a race that’s supposed to have multiple people…
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!
It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.
The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
Well, it’s finally happened. A day passed where only one candidate actually sent me emails. Joe Biden sent 4 emails, and no other active candidate bothered to reach out to me.
Half of Biden’s emails asked me for a donation, while one of them had a survey for me to fill out and one had a petition for me to sign.
The petition email was to show my support for Biden’s plan to support and expand Obamacare. Biden’s survey was about what the campaign should be focusing on, while one of his donation emails was pointing out that Joe is like Obamacare: been taking attacks from Republicans and still standing strong. His other donation email was pointing out that campaigning as we know it is changing, and it is still important to donate, though now all of their fundraising goals are from online donations and no longer from live events. However, they also understand that times are difficult right now, and if I can’t donate, I shouldn’t.
And… that was it. That was my inbox for the day.
As of the time of writing this post, I still haven’t received an email from any other active candidate.
