From that list it's Naruto, but in general I think it's probably Pokemon.
Things that end up being treated more like a kid's cartoon (like Pokemon, Digimon, Yugioh) are the most mainstream in the US.

It's Naruto. Naruto and DBZ are the two anime I could never stop hearing about throughout most of my time in school. They're anime that people who don't even know what anime is have heard of. Naruto was even more prominent since DBZ (and GT) had already ended a long time ago and didn't resume until recently with Super, not counting movies. One Piece is popular, but only within Japan and within the anime community.

Pokemon is easily the largest franchise and the anime is popular, but I feel like people mostly think of the games first instead of the anime.

Probably Naruto or One Piece.

Out of the choices probably would be Naruto.

I was torn between Attack on Titan and One Piece, first they are still ongoing, second they tend to be the most talked about things. naruto is finished but there is the third installment. there are other choices I would have parked in there, after all, Gintama is quite mainstream in Japan. regardless, my opinion and vote has been cast.

I would say Naruto.

tough question but I'd believe Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece not SAO cause it's too young of a series so far and not AoT for the same reason

Naruto is probably the only one with widespread name recognition in the west.

Naruto...sadly. And now he has his stupid son, so we might never get rid of him. It's like Goku and Gohan only less awesome and super annoying.

There is no definitive answer, but I did select Naruto since this series is one of the top listed that is either mocked or praised by supporters and non-supporters of Anime. The Pokemon, Bleach and Dragon Ball series may be the next to be considered mainstream.

I'd have to say Naruto. While all of them are pretty mainstream it's the only one that Ik of that has a spin off about their children and the main one I've seen over the years that everyone talks about. But all the others are pretty mainstream as well, you see them a lot too. But Naruto is my choice personally.
