Joining points to Tract Polygons error

I'm trying to spatially join 92,000+ points to see which census tract polygon it falls into (so I can get the GEOID for each point). It seems that either 1). ArcMap freaks out when the point is too close the the border of a tract and assigns it a random GEOID (possibly the correct GEOID, possibly the GEOID that is right next to it or 2). some points that are in the middle of the polygon are assigned the incorrect GEOID. When I performed a smaller batch it seemed to give the correct data. Does anyone have any thoughts on the number that ArcMap can handle? Thanks!
