Day 401: 6/24/20

Hey, Joe Biden followed up on the Obama fundraiser!

Sort of. Technically.


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!

Back to normal

Biden sent his usual 3 emails on Wednesday, nothing surprising here.

Also not surprising

Every single one of Biden’s emails were focused on fundraising.

Every one.

In all of the emails, Biden stressed some form of “Trump bad, need Biden in office, Biden needs money, give money.”

That was basically every email in a handful of words.

The very last email of the day did reference the Obama/Biden fundraiser from Tuesday… but there was no follow-up on how well it did.

These are actual quotes from the fundraiser: confirmed.

That was it. That was the full reference to the fundraiser and how it did. The rest of the email was about their new 3,000,000 donor deadline that they want to hit by the end of the month and how important it was to donate to get Biden elected.

As much as that sucks… that’s still more space than any of Biden’s emails have dedicated to Pride month this year.

1250 on the dot. Tomorrow the chart expands!
