The X and the Pro are much more powerful than the Switch and yet....Switch does in fact outsell them.

The Xbox is outsold often by the Switch and at times so is the PS4.

Both of the launch consoles been available way longer than the Switch but we can't say switch is mainly bought as a secondary console because it doesn't lose much(if at all) to the Xbox which has been available longer.

You can go on and on but you have zero proof that people aren't choosing switch as a main console nor have you shown proof people won't choose switch/pro/new Nintendo console as a main console over PS5/XBV.

Continue if you must
Seems like common sense to say most aren't buying Switch as a main. The reason it seems like common sense is because of poor 3rd party support, which means most folk are buying for exclusives...and likely main a PS, XB, or PC.

Cause good 1st party support isn't a reason to main the Switch.

Actually, no.

Let me ask you this, you main a PS4, what is your most played game this year? I bet it is 3rd party.
Cause Nintendo's 1st party games (as in more than one.)don't sell great.

Who said 3rd party games don't sell?

Switch the best exclusives and a decent amount of 3rd party offerings.

That shouldn't shock anyone. Japan loves it's handhelds.
It's a console mother f***er!!!!

The PlayStation 4 and the slim combined have sold 6,540,000 units in 4 years, while the Nintendo Switch has sold 6,670,000 units in Japan in just 2 years.

I trust used car salesmen & a broken clock more than 'experts', 'movie critics' these days.
