Meet Teen Whose Abortion Question Could Sink Trump

One Wisconsin teenager may have accomplished what other Republican presidential candidates could not — she put the brakes on Donald Trump's momentum.

Tanya Niemi asked Trump about his stance on women's reproductive rights at an MSNBC town hall where Chris Matthews was grilling the GOP front-runner. Matthews' follow up prompted Trump to reply that he believes in some sort of punishment for women who undergo abortion. The backlash was swift.  

"It's funny how such a person — me in Green Bay — can make a difference," Niemi told NBC News on Tuesday as she was preparing to vote in the Wisconsin primary. "I'm pretty proud of myself. I mean, honestly, I'm excited."

Niemi said she's planning to vote for Hillary Clinton.
