Look at that start-of-the-month dip in volume.
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.
Over the past week, Donald Trump sent me 56 emails, while Joe Biden only sent me 23.
The busiest day for emails this past week was Thursday, with a total of 14 emails sent. However, Trump was regularly sending close to 9 emails every single day, while Biden was staying near his usual 3 emails.
It may surprise you that Trump has an email on Racial Injustice, but that is the broad term I use for discussing the unrest across the country, the protests and riots, and the police and armed forces retaliation. Once I say that, it suddenly isn’t so odd that Trump is talking about it, right?
Biden, at least, has a wider view of things, looking at the upcoming National Convention, teasing his VP pick, and talking about ways I can help out or events I can attend.
Trump wants me to buy his love.
While Biden offered me a personalized ticket to the Democratic National Convention, Trump offered me signed hats, unsigned hats, hats in navy, and a personalized, beautiful, platinum membership card.
Trump offered me that platinum card for the first time yesterday evening.
He’s starting to forget things. Maybe he should retake that cognitive test.
Remember how Patrick Bonsignore was fretting about Trump’s massive Facebook ad buy earlier in the week? Yeah, yesterday, Biden’s team boasted about their historic ad buy, the size of which has never been done before. Guess Patrick’s plea really paid off (except that the order had been placed before he asked for the money… sigh.) But hey. Biden did wonder if I needed that cup of coffee or tea instead of defending democracy.
Trump wondered where I was, why I wasn’t on his lists, if I still cared about him and being a Patriot and hey, did I want a navy version of the iconic red Keep America Great hat?
No, actually. No I did not. I also don’t want his Freedom 2020 hat, which despite being at a HIGH SELLOUT RISK has not only not sold out, it’s restocked.
What can I say? Money can’t buy class.
