We’re almost there. Just a few more weeks of these emails, and we’re almost to the end.
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 4.
While both campaigns focused on fundraising, they also both mentioned an event they were holding. Biden sent one email about a virtual Kids First conversation his campaign was having to discuss his child care and early education plans, while Trump sent 5 emails asking if I was watching, planning on watching, or had watched his first comeback event since kicking the coronavirus in the ‘nads. It was, after all, EPIC.
Trump also invited me to become part of several of his super special clubs: I could choose to pay $35 to become a member of his platinum membership group, or $45 to become a member of his diamond membership group (or $80 for both!).
Meanwhile, Biden reassured me that while the news starting Monday about Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings may be putting a knot in my stomach, the Democrats were not done fighting yet. We needed to focus on getting him in the White House first.
But while Biden was hopeful for the future and empowering me to take control of my future, Trump was simply excited about his EPIC rally he was holding with BIG CROWDS because he has been cleared of the virus.
But, then again, maybe I don’t care. After all, I still hadn’t claimed my diamond card. Why was that?
The world may never know.
