Meanwhile, Wikipedia reports:
Historians have estimated that approximately 40–45% of the colonists actively supported the rebellion while 15–20% of the population of the thirteen colonies remained loyal to the British Crown. The remaining 35–45% attempted to remain neutral. [Calhoon, "Loyalism and neutrality" in Greene and Pole, A Companion to the American Revolution (2000) p.235]Interesting. We're inching closer to a significant tipping point of trust, where more Americans would've trusted the tyrannical monarchy of King George than now trust the American government.
