That's a good idea. Even better would be allowing search to be restricted to topics that had polls (or attachments for that matter) to make finding them easier. If I remember a topic with a poll (or attachment), but only remember some keywords, I might have to wade through pages of search results to find the poll (or attachment).

This would require another drop-down like Topic contains (Poll, Attachments, etc.).

P.S. As attachments are attached to posts, you might also want a Post contains drop-down.

That's about searching based on Custom Profile Fields. Polls (and attachments) aren't CPFs.

If you want to show an icon only, that's great, but allowing searching for polls would improve the feature greatly, I think.
