Casey Anthony is the most hated person in America, according to a new poll that tracks public perceptions of celebrities.

Anthony, 25, the Florida woman recently acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, is now in hiding after being released from jail last month.

Reuters reported that the poll, by E-Poll Market Research, found 53 percent of those questioned knew of Anthony, and 94 percent of those disliked her. That put her ahead of reality TV star Spencer Pratt; Nadya Suleman, known as the “Octomom”; O.J. Simpson, who ranked fourth, and Jon Gosselin.

Rounding out the list were Levi Johnston, Paris Hilton, Heidi Fleiss and Howard Stern.

Anthony was also deemed “creepy” by 57 percent of those questioned and “cold” by 60 percent.

The E-Score Celebrity poll is a weekly sample of 1,100 respondents 13 and over, raning more than 6,000 celebrities.
