Giggling Gary has no chance of being elected. Every vote he gets is like voting for Obama. This isn't the elction to cast a protest vote. Obama has to go.
A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama. They're exactly the same on every issue critical to the future of America. Wake up! You're being played. Stop thinking 1-dimensionally -- the Corporate Party and its 2 branches -- Republicrats and Demopublicans.
If he can earn 5% of the vote, that will be a huge milestone for the Libertarian Party, helping them achieve more equal footing against the Democrats and the Republicans http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/
I don't think we should vote based upon how others are voting. We aren't responsible for the whole universe, just ourselves. When you vote for someone you actually believe in, it matters to you and it matters to them. I'm not voting for either of the main candidates. Neither has big ideas or will, in action, probably be much different from one another. If the rest of the country chooses that path, than they get what they deserve. I'll be able to sleep at night.
No vote is wasted except one not exercised. By voting for Gary Johnson (or any other candidate) your are performing your civic duty. But, the practicality is that Obama or Romney will be our president next year. If you care and want a say in which one, you should vote for Obama or Romney. A vote any other way could be argued to be a wasted vote.
Your vote is never wasted, no matter who you vote for, at least in the strictest sense of voting.
But in an imperfect system where electronic voting machines can be hacked, then all votes may be worthless.
At the 2 presidential conventions of the 2 main parties, voting has essentially died as proven by the following 2, short video clips.

It is definitely not a wasted vote.
Some say a wasted vote is a vote not made, but I think a wasted vote is one made without adequate background knowledge and research of the candidate. I think there are too many uninformed people voting. That said, a vote for Gary would mean one vote less for Romney or Obama. If you're against either, then of course you're not wasting your vote. Gary Johnson may not have the slightest chance of winning, but, in a way, your vote is preventing another from succeeding.

Would you vote for a third-party candidate to send a message, or do you feel it's a wasted vote?

Both Romney and Obama want more war. Looks like we're staying in Afghanistan for many more years to come. And Iraq? Heck, "combat" troops have been renamed "trainers." All for a good Corporate buck....
