A New York Times article on Monday reported that Trump's ceaseless rhetoric antagonizing Mexican immigrants (and Latinos in general, and Muslims, and etc.) might haunt him at the polls, as legal residents seek to naturalize so they can vote against him. 

Over all, naturalization applications increased by 11 percent in the 2015 fiscal year over the year before, and jumped 14 percent during the six months ending in January, according to federal figures. The pace is picking up by the week, advocates say, and they estimate applications could approach one million in 2016, about 200,000 more than the average in recent years.
