Casey Anthony is the most hated person in America, says a new poll that tracks public perceptions of celebrities.
A Florida jury recently acquitted Anthony on charges that she murdered her then 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The Tot Mom has been in hiding since her release from jail in July, but the public doesn’t seem to have forgotten about the infamous six-week trial that left millions outraged and confused.
According to the poll released on Wednesday by E-Poll Market Research, Anthony is more disliked than the “Octomom,” former football star O.J. Simpson and Paris Hilton.
The California-based company performed research during the first week of August that revealed 53 percent of those questioned were familiar with Casey Anthony and her story, and 94 percent of those polled disliked her.
Fifty-seven percent of those questioned found Anthony “creepy,” while 60 percent found her to be “cold.”
Spencer Pratt, former star on the reality TV show “The Hills,” was second in the “total dislike” category, followed by Nadya Suleman, a single mother who gave birth to octuplets in 2009, even though she already had six children. O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and friend in 1995, came fourth.
The E-Score Celebrity poll is conducted weekly and is based on a representative sample of 1,100 respondents aged 13 and over. The poll ranks 6,000 celebrities in terms of public awareness, appeal and 46 other qualities.
