Waste (v) to be consumed, spent, or employed uselessly or without giving full value or being fully utilized or appreciated.

In other words, voting for someone who is currently polling at less than 8% when the other 2 are polling at around 40% is like betting on the 3rd horse in a 2 horse race.

Your vote will be employed uselessly ergo your vote will be wasted.
