I don't know if he represents the "average" American's perspective, but I know he represents a growing trend of people here who believe times are going to take a turn for the worse......I have been watching Nutn' since he started in 2008 I think. Feel like I know him and his family! I cant believe how much personal stuff he shares with his audience, maybe that's why he is so popular? I've been meaning to ask people Stateside whether they think he represents a part of the average person's US thinking?
Used to love his mountain backpacking adventures with his dog and friends or family but he has wound back his backpacking a bit and seems to do more biking now...also like it. Learnt a lot of stuff from him.
