Earth Day this year was a money-light day for Joe Biden.
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.
Another day, another 3 emails from Joe Biden. Nothing surprising here.
Biden started off the day by telling me he didn’t need to remind me about how bad Trump was on climate, but then he did so anyway. He followed up with an email asking me who I’d like to hear next on Biden’s podcast (did you know he has a podcast? I did!), and he finished with an email reminding me how important it is to thank people and asking me if there were any local leaders in Michigan I’d like to thank for their handling of the coronavirus (and thanking me).
Of those emails, the only one Biden asked for a donation in was the climate change one, as he reminded me that the best thing to do for the planet would be to elect someone who isn’t Trump. In his podcast email, he both asked for guest suggestions and suggested I listen to his podcast, and in the thank you email, he simply asked for suggestions of who to thank. All in all, it was a fairly nice day of emails.
