On Election Day, Joe Biden’s email list seems to have bugged out and sent me some duplicate emails. I counted them all, however.
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 21 emails on Election Day, while Joe Biden sent 8. 3 of Biden’s emails were sent twice, something that had been happening to my donor account but not to my non-donor account. I suspect this had to do with all the name changes and thinking I was someone I wasn’t.
Regardless, while Trump was demanding that I win the election for him by donating, Biden was asking me to win the election for him by voting. Trump’s one email asking for something other than money was to ask me to sign up for his text messages. (His one merch email was Melania shilling her calendars)
And Biden? After the polls closed, Biden sent an “inform” email with just one thing to say: Thank you. After everything that happened, my role in the election had come to an end.
While Biden wanted to empower me as a voter, Trump wanted to make sure I was riled up with hate for the evil left.
It really could not be more clear that Trump wants money, money, and more money.
Sadly, it is equally clear that much of America is happy to encourage him.
