That is assumes that it is a "preferred" framework. What makes you make this assumption?

While Struts is very prevalent, there are many who don't care for it as well.

When Struts was release (in 2000 I think) it was the best thing going. It took away a lot of the pain of JSP and Servlet programming. It has built up a large user base so it is the most widely used web application framework. These days there are probably better frameworks (including the new Struts 2.0), but Struts 1.x is still popular because there are a lot of application built using it, there is excellent documentation and there is a large pool of experienced Struts developers.
