Poll: Carrie Underwood will crush Taylor Swift at CMT Music Awards

Carrie Underwood Taylor Swift CMT Music AwardsCarrie Underwood's "Undo It" video scored a whopping 62% of the vote in our poll asking Awards Tracker readers to predict who'll win best video of the year at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night. Taylor Swift's "Mine" pulled a mere 22% of the tally as of this afternoon.

That's surprising considering the dueling country divas seemed to be on equal ground of late. Over the past four years, they have each won the CMT Award for best video of the year twice.  Underwood prevailed last year for "Casanova Cowboy" and, before that, for "Before He Cheats" (2007). Swift won for "Love Story" (2009) and ("Our Song" 2008).

We thought that Miranda Lambert might be in a position to topple both Underwood and Taylor, considering the recent sweep of the CMA Awards and ACM Awards by "The House That Built Me," but she's pulling less than 8% of the vote in our poll, which we reproduce below. If you disagree strongly about the early results, pipe in!
