(CBS) Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted last month of killing her 2-year-old daughter, is the most hated person in America, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

The poll, conducted by E-Poll Market Research, found that the 25-year-old was more disliked than Paris Hilton, O.J. Simpson and "Octomom" Nadya Suleman.

Reuters reports that 53 percent of those questioned in the poll said they were aware of Anthony and her story, and 94 percent of those people said they disliked her.

"The Hills" personality Spencer Pratt came in second in the "total dislike" category. Suleman and Simpson came in third and fourth place, respectively.

E-Poll's E-Score Celebrity poll is conducted weekly, according to its website, ranking more than 6,000 celebrities based on 46 different attributes.

The results released Wednesday are based on research from the first week of August.
