Day 326: 4/10/20

It’s occurred to me that my countdown to the convention is no longer correct…


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.

The standard spread

On Good Friday, Joe Biden sent out 3 emails to his mailing lists.


While he did ask for money, the bulk of Biden’s ask was actually for survey details. Specifically, he wanted to know my priorities for the general election… but he also wanted to know why I supported him.

One topic per email.

And really, that was it. What were my priorities for April, could I give him money, and what was my reasoning for supporting him?

Really, these blog posts are going to be so short now.

I estimate around 1400-1500 total emails by July.
