First of all, for a bit of background, understand that the term “political science” means actual science in the same way that reading freckles means you can predict whether the owner of the freckles is going to give birth to a child who will fly to the moon.
The term caught on at the end of the 19th century in American academic circles, because professors were seeking more prestige.
If you want to, you can say political science is the study of political systems, but studying something doesn’t make you a scientist.
However, since the term SCIENCE is worshipped by many, many people want to get in on the act.
