Hi Alex,

G/p/c = (G)lobal (p)ea(c)e.  I thought it was obvious!  ;^)

Seriously, the poll name used in many URLs, so the shorter the better.
Also it's not supposed to be meaningful because the meaning of a poll
can change over time.  This is explained here:

But I think you're right, wherever possible the UI should expand it
with the display title.  So maybe like this:

  G/p/c - World peace
