Things are back to normal for BTE and Joe Biden.
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of 1 candidate for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, but I’ve been on 28 mailing lists! 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!
I signed up to all mailing lists either on May 21 or the day the candidate announced, whichever was later. Using a different email address, I have donated at least $1 to all candidates who have been on a debate stage (I have given additional donations to my preferred candidates through my personal email, but the campaigns have linked the two accounts together and may ask for more as a result).
When showing breakdowns by campaigns, there will usually be 2 numbers. Emails to my non-donor account will be indicated by a darker color/top bar in horizontal bar charts. Emails to my donor account will be indicated by a lighter color/bottom bar.
Unless otherwise specified, all other charts combine the donor and non-donor numbers, as they are roughly 1-for-1, so the percentages and relative differences don’t change much. You can divide the numbers in half to get the rough estimate for what someone not signed up twice would be receiving. The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
If you want specific data on any particular day, feel free to drop a comment!
As usual, Joe Biden sent 3 emails to each of my accounts.
But, as you can see, only one of those emails to one account had a donation ask.
That was because I signed up for his virtual fundraiser tonight via my donor account. Biden sent me a thank you and the link to the fundraiser. On my non-donor account, he sent me a reminder that it was a thing and asked me to donate to join it.
Other than that, he sent his usual survey email and offering me a free sticker email.
In comparison with Biden offering me a free sticker, Trump is offering me a flag. It isn’t free, though.
Except… if you actually (bear with me), go to his website, and check out Trump’s own shop…
…you can save $5.
But hey, maybe that $5 covers shipping?
