Day 332: 4/16/20

Thursday was definitely a general election sort of day. After his surge of endorsements, Joe Biden turned his focus on Donald Trump.


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.

Two by two.

Still with just 3 emails a day. Nothing new for Biden here.

Not a full donation day.

Biden sent an email to remind me that I had not yet participated in his “Beat Trump” survey. That really is what the survey is called. It’s not his General Campaign Strategy survey or his April Strategy Survey. It’s his Beat Trump survey.

He also sent out two emails asking for money to beat Trump. In one of them, he pointed out that the RNC and Trump have pulled in $212 million in the first quarter, and he needed all of our $5 and $7 donations to catch up (I’ve apparently donated enough to get my usual donation amounts boosted a bit. It’s very frustrating to type). He also emailed asking me if I knew what my money would go toward, would I be more willing to donate? Biden then proceeded to tell me what my money would go toward.

I didn’t donate. I hope that answered his question. Send a better email if you want me to give. If you’re not able to give something new, why would you expect me to give something new in return?

Nearing a thousand donor emails.
