Day 319: 4/3/20

Friday was not an exciting day. It was very similar to Thursday, and similar to Wednesday.


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.

I didn’t update yesterday’s graph. I did update today’s.

Once again, Joe Biden sent 3 emails and Bernie Sanders sent 1.

No charitable requests on Friday.

Bernie Sanders’ single email asked me to sign up to support his demands for the next coronavirus relief package, while Joe Biden had an April strategy survey and two asks to donate.

Has this chart changed?

As always these days, Bernie Sanders’ email was all about the coronavirus, while Joe Biden had one email solely for raising money, one more for generic strategy stuff, and one focusing on his policies. This policy email was talking about how the Trump administration was attempting to kill Obamacare, and the best way to fight to keep it was to donate to Biden who would fight to protect it.

Once again, Sanders didn’t talk about his campaign at all, while Biden maintained his focus on the goal. We really only have one candidate at this point, but Sanders won’t admit it.

Not much change to this chart. As always.
