Biden First 100 Days: CODEPINK Poll

President Biden has officially been in office for 100 Days. At this critical juncture, we want to know what you think!

How would you grade President Biden’s performance on foreign policy so far? After we hear from CODEPINK members, we’ll release a final Biden report card and GPA, grading the President on important components of his Foreign Policy. We’ll also release recommendations for how Biden can improve his grades before the end of his term!


  1. President Biden released a proposal for a $753 billion military budget, a $13 billion increase from FY2021, which includes money to build NEW nuclear weapons. His Administration has used incendiary rhetoric and potential for military conflict against China and Russia as justification to increase the Pentagon budget.

  3. President Biden refuses to lift thousands of onerous sanctions on countries including Iran, Venezuela, Nicaragua, North Korea and Syria that are impeding importation of food and COVID relief to ordinary people.

  4. web polls

  5. President Biden does not support the TRIPS waiver, which would allow countries to locally manufacture COVID-19 vaccines. The Administration also refuses to roll back Trump’s sanctions and blockade of Cuba. He has also continued the failed Trump policy of recognizing the unelected Juan Guaido as interim President of Venezuela to undermine the government of twice-elected President Maduro.

  7. Despite his announcement that the U.S. would no longer support the war on Yemen, his Administration authorized massive weapons sales to the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

  9. President Biden has continued unconditional support to Israel, despite growing calls for an even-handed policy that places conditions on US aid to Israel and recognizes the rights of Palestinians.

Biden deserves a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days in office because he proposed a $13 billion increase in military spending amidst COVID & climate chaos. Seriously, @POTUS? Militarism will only make things worse. @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

I’m giving @POTUS a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days in office because he's yet to withdraw support for the Saudi-led blockade that threatens the lives of 400,000 Yemeni children. What grade would you give him? @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

Biden deserves a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days in office because he's trying to waste $1.7 trillion on a “nuclear modernization plan" that only further endangers humanity. What grade would you give @POTUS? @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

I’m giving @POTUS a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days in office because he continues to recognize imperialist Guaidó as interim pres of VE. If Biden did his homework, he'd know that US intervention ≠ democracy. @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

[email protected] gets a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days because, despite promising to end support for the war on Yemen, he’d still rather make a killing on killing Yemenis than lose a $23 billion weapons deal w/ the UAE. @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

I'm giving @POTUS a [insert grade] on foreign policy for his first 100 days because his admin continues to escalate conflict with China & Russia rather than work to tackle COVID-19 & the climate crisis. How would you grade him? @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

[email protected] may have restored aid to Palestine, but his administration continues to support Israeli occupation. If @POTUS doesn't want to flunk foreign policy in my gradebook, he must stop supporting Israeli crimes. @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/bidenpoll

    Joe Biden, Nick Kristof, Dick Cheney, Thom Friedman, etc. all of them war-loving never-served chicken hawks who used their political influence to dodge the draft during the Vietnam War (it wasn’t just Trump by any means) and can’t get enough of sending others outside the Beltway Bubble to fight for American hegemony and the Monroe Doctrine. I expected no less from Biden, a corrupt MIC, Big Oil, AIPAC & PNAC butt-kissing political hack of the slimiest order!

    The same-old, same-old with respect to foreign policy, other than the withdrawal from Afghanistan. Pretty much what I expected from a president who’s essentially Republican Lite, that expectation being the source of my disappointment that Biden won the nomination. Nevertheless, I am quite surprised that he agreed to bloating the military budget and creating more nuclear weapons, and has refused to lift Trump’s sanctions against Cuba. How we benefit from being mean forever to a country that has done us no harm is a bit of a mystery. See James Daly’s comment for more on this. But Biden’s decisions aren’t the only problem. Mary Carrick’s comment reveals an ongoing problem with the continuing presence of the Trump Factor, despite his having been kicked to the curb, and the post-election problem of Republican legislators continuing to burrow into Trump’s nether regions despite his election loss certainly isn’t helping, while some other comments suggest Biden may have made some poor decisions in his Cabinet appointments. In any case, how any intelligent voter can imagine that Biden is or will be a worse president than Trump is simply unfathomable. Wither goest thou, America?

    American exceptionalism continues. The military remains holy.

    Imperialism in last last stages.

    It is rather obvious that the weapons contractors have bought Biden. Biden likes being president of the US Empire. We must resist his imperialism with a soothing tone. If Biden continues on the imperial path, Trump will vote for him. Just remember South Carolina turned the tide for Biden. Regardless, we must mount a significant nonviolent resistance campaign.

    Joe Biden’s foreign policy is a continuation of Trump’s foreign policy except that Biden is showing a lot more hostility to China.

    Hi -
    Only place I give Biden leeway is that he has refrained from starting war in Iran. For that I give a D.

    Although he never promised he would end the crippling sanctions, we all hoped he would; nonetheless, he gets an F as do all his predators, including Barack Obama who started sanctioning Venezuela in 2015. He promised a $2,000 check “on day one” and played on everyone’s fears and concerns for their future with that promise – we received a $1400 one-time payment even though the government closed everyone’s business as a matter of public health policy. His weapons sales to corrupt, genocidal oil-rich states in the Middle East reveals what we all knew: “Nothing will fundamentally change”. He continues the repellant and morally bankrupt US tradition and idea that the whole world, especially our neighbors to the south, expressed in the Monroe Doctrine, is our back yard, hence the grotesque military budgets necessary to maintain the hegemony. He and the rest of the congress, for approving these budgets, collectively get an F on all points. One could write a book on why he and the collective leadership of this country deserves an F.

    Absolutely abysmal foreign policies. It was quite frightening to think that we were potentially on the verge of WW3 recently. I also happen to think Anthony Blinken should resign and Avril Haines is a complete moron.

    Thank you all for saying it for me. Straight F with a bit of ‘window dressing’ here and there.
