A deep "glancing at graphs and maps" data dive, comparing the US and the UK experience with delta, shows that the US problem is the geographic variation in vaccination rates. After a good initial start, vaccinations slowed down a lot in the US, but the overall rate is still pretty good! It would probably be "good enough" if the vaccine take up had been evenly distributed across locations, instead of with the massive pockets of resistance and refusal.
