The Marist Poll received votes for "You know" and "anyway," but they weren't even close to the 47 percent that pegged "whatever" as something that had definitely run its course.
The breakdown found "whatever" to be particularly tiresome among respondents in the Midwest, Latinos and people under 45 years old.
Phrases that bug Americans include "it is what it is" and "at the end of the day."
The poll, based on 938 responses, had a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
