I think I've had something like this argument with you before :), but
I think the answer to your question is related to your "big three"
nomenclature being a bit weasel-wordy.
If we trust Ohloh¹ to tell us something about the use of a given VCS
across a representative sample of repositories, the distribution is:
Now that we know that the big three aren't in anywhere near equal
use, I think it's pretty clear why someone would default towards Git
without much hesitation. No-one² likes to learn n different tools
for a job that's adequately solved by 1 of them.
²: Okay, *approximately* no-one.
