Abigail's power is simply the power of peer pressure as she influences the girls to go along with whatever story she wants to perpetuate in the courtroom. Her power is also the power that she exerts over John Proctor because of their illicit affair and her knowledge that she can "blackmail" him in one fashion or another.
