Could the British have won the revolutionary war?

I am tackling on this subject by NOT thinking they lost due to any real or meaningful "unluckiness"

Re: Could the British have won the revolutionary war?

As I understand, the revolutionary war is the American War of Independence.
Well, the British could have a chance to win if the Americans were not supported and trained by the allies and the British didn't engage in too many wars. They could win if they knew to accept the Americans' petitions and end the taxes. However, the Americans still had their advantages in their homeland, while the British were outsiders.
And even if the American had lost in the war, it would not have prevented them from gaining independence in later centuries, especially in the period of decolonization

Logistics, logistics, logistics.

Too long and costly a supply line.

The British also tried to attract the black slaves to join their side, but this policy was not enough
