In colonial times over 75% of european ancestry was British, but as most of white americans don't know further than 3 generations long they prefer to self identify with newer ancestries. Also I've heard a lot of americans find english ancestry boring and prefer to claim something else.

    In 23andme most white americans tested cluster way closer to Uk than to anything else

    Id venture to say as high as 70% of european blood in modern white americans comes straight up from Britain or Ireland.

    There are exceptions, look at most white crowds in protests across the US, most people looks distinctively american. I dont think a person like george W bush looks particularly german, french, spanish, dutch or from anywhere else in europe.

    I've noticed Americans have huge jaws. Might have to do with nutrition.

    This. I have seen americans of entirely german background (even born in germany), who looked stereotype american. I don't know why this is? Maybe the smile and relaxed attitude.

    Although historically Europeans from certain places in Europe migrated to America, such as British Isles and Germany, the numbers of others, Swedes, Italians, Spanish, etc. can not be underestimated if accuracy of European American ethnicity is going to be maintained.

    I think not, I see that most white Americans are like the white Brazilians, have drops of Native or African blood giving them peculiarity.

    Marcelo Adnet is an example of white Brazilian who claims to be 17% black, I don't think he could pass for European, because he has his own identity.
