EDIT: This post was written when Trump’s emails were hiding in Spam. Here is the correct breakdown of this day’s emails.
Hmm. No Donald Trump again. Guess that new campaign manager is taking some time to pull all the threads together.
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 once again sent 3 emails, the only major candidate in my inbox at all.
This time, Biden stressed that we are almost 100 days out to the election (Sunday) and please please please can I make my first donation before then?
For some reason, he also expressed worry about not having as much money as Trump because Trump was fundraising in his own properties and in COVID-19 hotspots. I get the concern, but I don’t quite get the connection.
In addition to those two fundraising emails, Biden also sent a petition asking me to demand that Betsy Devos and Trump put forward a science-based plan to open the schools again, today. In that email, he included his own plan to do so.
The main problem with Biden’s plans for handling COVID-19 problems is that he calls them all the Biden plan for this or that. By putting his name on them, he guarantees that Trump will never ever ever even consider doing them, so they won’t go into effect until January 2021 at the earliest.
Unfortunately, there are many Americans who won’t survive long enough to see that.
