During #SharkWeek Campaign To Stop Payday Loan Shark Attacks, New Poll Shows Americans See Payday Lenders as Predators

WASHINGTON - During the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, as National People’s Action and allies hold actions around the country to put a stop to payday loan shark practices, new polling shows Americans of all political leanings have negative impressions of payday lenders. The poll, conducted by Lake Research Partners on behalf of Americans for Financial Reform and Center for Responsible Lending, shows that nearly 2 in 3 (65%) voters have a negative view of payday lenders. Voters view payday lenders as predators rather than resources by a margin of more than 3:1.
