If robots ever become aware enough to become politicians, you will likely see robot governments form and pretty quickly you basically have the story of The Animatrix, humans will just be enslaved after a long war and put into machines that will simulate the world.

Political science is a concept that can only be interpreted and actually developed upon by human minds. Robots will not be able to perceive politics on such a scale that entire parliaments will be replaced or assisted by them, as robots tend to overlook major factors.

You really can't use technology to replicate the mix of eerie neuroticism and ambiguous, vain narcissism required to make a true political scientist.
