Day 431: 7/24/20

EDIT: This post was written when Trump’s emails were hiding in Spam. Here is the correct breakdown of this day’s emails.

Sometimes, it’s almost as if I never signed up for Donald Trump’s emails at all.


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.

This is a typical Biden day.

On Friday, Joe Biden sent me 3 emails.

Mostly money-focused

All of Biden’s emails were asking me for money, but one asked if I’d seen the Biden/Obama socially distant conversation. Just in case I hadn’t, they included a link for me to watch it.

Guilt-tripping, huh?

While Biden was focused on the 100-days-out goal that’s coming up on Sunday, he did point out that there are fewer days to the election than there are from the start of the COVID-19 shutdown periods.

In addition, Biden asked if I’d wished I’d done more after the 2016 election results. To make sure I didn’t have that regret again, he said, I should donate to him now.

And ultimately, that was it for Friday. Biden needs money because there’s 100 days to go. Not a very exciting day, but there are only 100 days to go. They have to run out of content eventually, right?

Biden is once again with twice the number of emails as Trump.
