I switched from Struts to JSF about 5 years ago and haven't looked back.
In theory, Struts is more "bare metal" and therefore can achieve higher performance, but in practice, I don't know of anyone who's actually measured this. You can mix Struts and JSF in the same webapp, incidentally.
In reality, JSF gives better data validation with less work and fewer source files, so unless I have a particular performance issue, I don't worry about any hypothetical speed benefits of Struts over JSF. Assuming that there really are any.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
