Day 357: 5/11/20

Three emails again, but not all fundraising.


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.

Normal emails for a normal day.

On Monday, Joe Biden sent his usual 3 emails. Nothing to see here…

One topic per email.

Biden’s three emails were about three different things: National Nurses’ Week, how much the campaign needs money, and my opinion on their strategy.

Evenly split.

For national nurses’ week, Biden asked me to sign a card thanking the nurses.

He asked me to donate because he was humbled, so humbled, very humbled by all the support he’s been given as the nominee. (Someone needs to stop taking advice from Julian Castro’s email writers).

But the email that gave me a laugh (and made me roll my eyes) was the survey email. You see, I had been PERSONALLY CHOSEN as one of his most ACTIVE supporters to fill out this survey.

On both of my accounts.


Look at that history!

This is what they showed me to demonstrate how active I was as a supporter. Geez. If this is what Biden’s MOST active supporters look like… we’re in trouble come November.

So many emails, so little content.
