The official stance from DC is that the regular Justice League earth we read about is Prime Earth and every other earth is... secondary.
I don't know if there is any other logic than that at work, it has certainly always been odd that Earth-2 became such a significant and sustained target for Apokolips whereas Prime-Earth fared much much better, even though they had more heroes to call on for Darkseid's initial invasion I don't believe you can just chalk it down to the formation of the Justice League and its distinctive individual members - the League won that initial incursion, while Earth-2's original trinity died ending a full scale war, and only after a good several years of fighting it off...
Prime-Earth does appear the more potent universe.
Well, in the Batman/Superman story where the two versions of Bats and Supes meet each other (early in the careers of the Prime versions, apparently just before the invasion of Earth-2) it was said the younger versions were darker, more violent, aggressive, something like that.
And that weird being who caused two other universes to merge with the pre-Flashpoint universe during the Sept. 2011 reboot did say it was done so that there'd be a universe strong enough to deal with the 'big badness' that was coming.
And so, as you said, "Prime-Earth does appear the more potent universe."
