John B. Judis is an Americanmarker author and journalist. He received B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of California at Berkeleymarker. He is a senior editor at The New Republic and a contributing editor to The American Prospect.

A founding editor of Socialist Revolution (now Socialist Review) in 1969, and of East Bay Voice in the 1970s, Judis started reporting from Washington in 1982, when he became Washington correspondent for In These Times. He has also written for GQ, Foreign Affairs, Mother Jones, The New York Times Magazine, and The Washington Post. He is highly regarded for his cursory knowledge of history and politics, as well as his sober writing style. His ideas and writing are affiliated with the political left. He was, in his own words, "raised on Marx and Marxism", and he continues to advocate the study of Marxist ideas.

In 2002, he published a book (co-written with political scientist Ruy Teixeira) arguing that Democrats would retake control of American politics, thanks in part to growing support from miniorities and well-educated professionals. The title, The Emerging Democratic Majority, was a deliberate echo of Kevin Phillips' 1969 classic, The Emerging Republican Majority. Praised widely by liberals and conservatives alike, the book was named one of the year's best by The Economist magazine.
