After a traumatic weekend for the Trump campaign, emails are back on track.
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.
Donald Trump sent 12 emails on Monday, while Joe Biden sent only 5.
Most of the emails from both campaigns were focused, as usual, on raising money. Trump’s campaign jumped back to offering the 800% match–no longer was it enough to just ask people to give money to show they supported Trump’s recovery. In addition, he offered a contest of a signed Freedom 2020 hat just to show how much we love Trump and the American flag and hats.

While Biden was mostly excited about the upcoming debate for Kamala Harris and Mike Pence, he also talked about his town hall from Monday night and how important it was that I voted.
Trump, on the other hand, went back to talking about how awesome Trump was for having beaten the Covid and being back in the White House already (confirmed sick: 15 people), and how it was because of the support of his TOP supporters, like ME, and I could continue to show my support with an 800% matched donation.
Oh, and also, was I going to vote for Trump in November? He was just curious…
