Es ist in, politisch zu sein.

Es ist in: is that an idiom?

I guess it is short for "es ist in Mode... "

"It is in to be political." ... I am not sure where are the borders of something being/not being an idiom.. but since it's the same like in English I would guess it's not an idiom ... (not specific for German). I will like to see what others have to say to this.

yes, it is. "In" in this case carries the same meaning as the English term "hip". So, your sentence would translate into "it's hip being political."
