I'm not sure that unpinning is really needed here. Answers on politics rarely become "outdated" like they do on SO and the other technical sites, especially not on the same time scales.
Yes, there are lots of cases where there are answers with more votes than the accepted answer, but I don't think that's actually evidence of needing unpinning, but rather is exactly why pinning was done in the first place. If the goal had always been to have the answer with the most votes at the top, there would never have been a reason to develop the pinning feature.
There are a couple of reasons (both of which are somewhat common on this site) why an accepted answer might have fewer votes than a non-accepted one, even if the accepted one really is better quality:
Lower quality answers posted sooner
It's common to get short, so-so answers posted rather quickly after a question is posted. Since SE tends to give more visibility to more recently-posted questions, these will typically attract significantly more upvotes than if the same answer had been posted at the same time as all of the others. And this tendency is magnified by the score sorting resulting in these answers appearing at the top. This effect doesn't actually reflect answer quality at all, but rather just how quickly the answer was posted. Especially when a lot of such answers get posted on a question, this also commonly means that much better quality answers posted a day or two later get few, if any, votes, due to being buried by the sort underneath all of the older ones that already have votes.
The dreaded HNQ effect
When questions hit the Hot Network Questions, they tend to a attract a lot of views while they're on HNQ, very many of which are from users who have no reputation on this site and, thus, can upvote, but cannot downvote. When this happens, answers tend to get a lot of "this agrees with my biases" upvotes, even if the answer isn't particularly good quality (or even if it's just outright wrong.) This is also a problem on Skeptics and other SE sites that tend to get a lot of controversial topics about which people have strong (but not always well-informed) opinions. This commonly leads to poor answers having high scores, as everyone coming from HNQ can upvote them, but only people with sufficient reputation on this site can downvote them.
In both of the above cases, pinning the accepted answer to the top can give more visibility to better answers than ones that may have more votes. In the case of answers that were posted later, but accepted while the question was still relatively active, pinning the accepted answer can also lead to a newer, better-quality answer eventually outscoring the older ones, which often wouldn't happen if it were buried underneath the existing answers.
I do agree that there are cases on this site where the OP selects an answer that is just what they want to hear rather than actually being the best answer, but it is my experience that both of the above cases happen far more frequently here than that.
It would be nice if SE had a better, more nuanced approach to sorting available, but, given only the options of pinning or not pinning, I personally lean toward leaving the pinning. Neither solution is perfect by any means, but, especially on sites where answers don't really become "outdated" often, I do think that pinning the accepted answer solves more problems than it creates.
