President Donald Trump primary voters have not turned away from him, but their attitude toward social changes leaves 63 percent of them "uneasy," according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

According to the Journal, Republicans who voted for Trump in the 2016 primaries almost unanimously — at 98 percent — approve of the job he is doing in the White House. His approval rating among Republicans who voted for other primary candidates in 2016 stands at 66 percent.

But there are divisions in Republicans' attitudes toward social changes, according to the Journal.

Asked how they felt about social changes that have made America more diverse and tolerant of different lifestyles, 63 percent of Trump's primary voters said they were uneasy with the social changes, compared with 35 percent of GOP voters who supported other primary candidates.

Among Republicans overall, 80 percent approve of Trump's job performance, the poll found — a lower share than former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush drew among their own parties at the same point in they presidencies — but higher than the ratings Democratic presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter garnered, according to the Journal.

In other analysis findings, the Journal reported:

  • Among both GOP voters who picked Trump in the primaries, 59 percent said immigration weakens the country; the same percentage of GOP voters who cast their ballots for other candidates felt immigration strengthens the United States.
  • Among Trump primary voters, 75 percent have positive feelings about the GOP; 58 percent of other GOP voters felt positively about the party.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 2.82 percentage points.
