(CNN)What's Donald Trump thinking?

That's the question coming on the heels of the latest remarks from the campaign season's most provocative candidate. Earlier this week, you've probably heard, Trump announced that if abortion were banned -- which it very well could be if he is elected to office -- he believed women who undergo the procedure should be punished.
    And yet, it's more than just a case of another day, another headline-making proclamation. This time, it's possible even Trump has gone too far -- and not just with female voters, but with all voters.
