We're people that voted for Breckinridge in Northern states typically Southerners?

I noticed in states like Indiana and Ohio that Breckinridge got over 10,000 votes, that's really nothing compared to the totals of those states, but still i'm curious as to the profile of person that would vote for Breckinridge in the North. We're they a Southern diaspora? Southerners that moved north?

Most of the voters in the Old Northwest (ILL, IND, OH) with southern roots went strongly for Douglas. Breckinridge managed to pull between 1% to 4.5% of the total votes.

The non slave states where Breckinridge performed best include Conn (21%), CA (28%), and ORE(34%).
