The most hated person in America? Casey Anthony

TAMPA The public vitriol toward Casey Anthony hasn't died down, a month after her acquittal on charges involving her toddler Caylee's death. A new survey ranks the 25-year-old the most hated person in America. More despicable than O.J. Simpson, more reviled than Paris Hilton, more loathed than, yes … even Heidi Fleiss. Heidi Fleiss? Didn't that Hollywood madam thing blow over years ago?
But we digress. Anthony, who was freed from the Orange County Jail on July 17 and never "officially" seen since, tops the latest list of celebrity scorn from California-based E-Poll Market Research. In the "total dislike" category, Anthony was unfavored by a whopping 94 percent of 1,100 Americans age 13 and older polled. She finished ahead of former reality TV star Spencer Pratt and "Octomom" Nadya Suleman. Simpson, perennially scorned since being acquitted in 1995 in the deaths of his wife and her friend, was fourth. Former reality star Jon Gosselin was fifth, followed by Levi Johnston, the former fiance of Bristol Palin; socialite Paris Hilton; Fleiss; and radio shock jock Howard Stern. Anthony was also considered quite "creepy" and "cold" by poll respondents. Anthony was said to be "creepy" by 57 percent of those polled, second only to rocker Marilyn Manson. With 60 percent, Anthony easily topped the "cold" category. By comparison, only 43 percent considered Simpson among the coldest celebrities.
