Thursday was for some big names in the Joe Biden emails.
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!
3 emails on Thursday, with 1 coming from Elizabeth Warren and 1 coming from Julian Castro.
Elizabeth was writing to talk about how her favorite part of campaigning was getting to talk to people, so if I donated, I could get a phone call from her and Joe Biden. Julian was writing to let me know that no one would worker harder for the most vulnerable in American than Biden. Both of them wanted me to donate.
(Julian did not use “humble” or reference any member of his family. I don’t think he wrote this email.)
Those two emails were the fundraising ones. The petition email covered Trump’s latest attempt to rip away the ACA and asked me to sign on to save it.
It has been 25 days since Pride month began, and we still haven’t even gotten a full sentence about it in an email.
