On his one year anniversary, Joe Biden went ALL OUT on his emails. However, on the day after, he went back to normal.
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.
Joe Biden sent a total of 9 donor emails and 8 non-donor emails in just two days!
Biden asked for money a lot, because campaigns are expensive, but he also took some time to ask me to attend a virtual rally. He offered me a limited-edition sticker for SOUL Saturday, and he asked me to fill out his general campaign strategy survey. He also asked me to sign my name to thank heroes of the pandemic. All in all, he had a lot of options for me to support him this weekend.
Most of Biden’s emails this weekend had to do with the campaign, whether it be for the anniversary celebrations or to get my input on where they should direct their energy. He did forward his first campaign email to me as a reminder of how far they had come, and he also emailed once about the everyday heroes during the global pandemic.
In general, though, Biden just wanted some more money please.
