I thought that the White House is a more globally recognizable landmark than the US Capitol?

It's leading because it's by far the most instantly recognizable US landmark, like the OP was asking for.

Statue of Liberty. There's nothing else even remotely similar to it in America.

I believe that there is a Statue of Slightly Encumbered that's pretty similar.

Hmm... This is a hard one. I would say it's between NYC and San Francisco, as you can see both in a ton of movies.
