In 1976, I would say no. It would probably be a more accurate characterization to say that Ford appealed to moderate Republicans in the northeast (the group of voters that were sometimes called "Rockefeller Republicans"). Outside of that, you don't see as much of an effect. Carroll County IA voted for Carter more than it did Humphrey.

In 1980, I would say yes. It's possible Ted Kennedy's run in the primaries killed enthusiasm for Carter within that group.
