comment Can I say “many of the United States”?
I surprised myself by responding mentally to this question with "Sure. Why not?" It didn't sound strange to me at all. And, really, I don't think it is incorrect. But, okay, I accept what seems to be the majority opinion as stated nicely by FF, and further suggest that another good way around the problem would be to use "many states in the U.S."

comment word to describe a quote often attributed to but not verified to a person
@Jim I suppose, to be fair, I might also suggest allegedly, as in "Einstein allegedly said," and purportedly, and "It is attributed to Einstein," and "one of Einstein's dicta (or dictums) is" -- but none of these exactly fits the slot, n'est pas? I still think apocryphal is the target word.
