Week 72: September 27-October 3, 2020

There’s always a crash after the last of the month, but fundraising deadlines don’t usually coincide with the President contracting the coronavirus.

There is no denying that email crash

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.

These numbers are both unusually suppressed for the last quarter fundraising deadline of the election

Donald Trump sent 68 emails this past week, while Joe Biden sent 27.

Tuesday was the debate, but Wednesday was the end of the month

Tuesday, debate day and the day before the last day of the fundraising period, had the most emails ever in one day since July 7, with 20 total emails. However, not long after, Trump revealed he was positive for COVID-19 and both campaigns scaled back drastically on their campaign emails.

See that red COVID-19 spike? I wonder why he’s starting to talk about it…

While both campaigns focused on the debates and fundraising, as would be fitting, Trump’s campaign also focused on his Supreme Court pick in a week of karmic justice, as it seems like the celebratory party they threw for his pick was the super spreader event that has infected at least 11 top Republicans. Trump is hospitalized as I write this, tweeting out video messages cleverly edited to hide his coughing fits, and the campaign sent out 3 emails all basically saying the same thing: Trump has a video message for you, would you like to write a message back to him?

Two of those emails were sent by the campaign staff, but one was rewritten to talk about “my dad” and was signed Donald Trump Jr. In all of the messages, I was assured that Trump was strong and brave and fighting tirelessly for all Americans.


Solemn was the best I could say about those COVID emails

While Biden remains positive and Trump remains negative, both campaigns were getting desperate about the end-of-quarter fundraising deadline. Trump, however, maintained that I was his most specialest special supporter and deserved all the praise and 700-850% matching.

The offers that weren’t matched were because I qualified for the Trump 100 Club

It was Biden, however, who gave me information on how to vote. All of Biden’s fundraising emails are starting to pick up a “we must reach voters” angle, focusing on getting the vote out over this next month.

Trump rarely tells me why he wants money, other than to keep fighting for ME or to put his ads on the air to counter the lies told by the left.

Mostly, though, Trump just wants money to have money.

2020 has been the longest decade in a century, at least.
