I think what's helped this become a commonly held viewpoint is key people in the industry saying the same thing.

Stewart Chiefet said on this week's Retro Hour podcast that "Commodore didn't make it in the US" because competing (inferior) products with bigger advertising budgets won over the public.

David Pleasance often talks about Commodore's failure to find its feet in the US too.

It's certainly true that there were/are passionate groups of Amiga users in the US, just disproportionately fewer than elsewhere in the world.
