EDIT: This post was written when Trump’s emails were hiding in Spam. Here is the correct breakdown of this day’s emails.
I heard from Donald Trump’s campaign manager at half an hour past midnight on Tuesday.
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 again led the email count with 4 emails to Donald Trump’s 1.
Trump’s campaign manager… he didn’t really introduce himself. He just said he was the new campaign manager and he has one goal, get Trump re-elected, so let’s kick things off with a 500% MATCH!!!!!
Biden, on the other hand, asked me for my thoughts on the Democratic National Convention. Was I going to tune in?
He also announced his next part of his Build Back Better plan, which was all about empowering caregivers (with an emphasis on how they are mostly women).
His third email talked about how every day Trump was in office was a day the ACA was at risk.
And finally, he invited me to a virtual town hall to discuss his new policy.
I am not accustomed to these event invitations outside of newsletters. To talking about policies and plans. Biden’s emails are… improving.
Biden has been making a lot of new hires lately, including a digital communications director who used to be on the Pete Buttigieg team. I’m thinking there’s starting to be a change of direction to these emails. They’re not so desperately money-hungry, but they’re starting to be a little more informative. Things I might actually read and engage in.
I’m not holding my breath yet, but I’m starting to feel some hope.
Biden was very excited yesterday. He was worried about the ACA, but he wanted to empower Americans who have frequently felt powerless.
Trump’s new campaign manager, on the other hand, told me that Trump himself said that they could count on me for a donation. He hopes Trump was right…
