The network quickly apologized for the mistake.

For a few minutes on Tuesday, Fox News, due to a technical error, reported Donald Trump had won the New Hampshire primary on its website. 

The network quickly apologized for the mistake. 

"During routine testing in preparation for the New Hampshire primary a malfunction occurred which briefly showed errant data on our website. This error has been rectified. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused," the statement read.

The billionaire businessman was leading in the Republican presidential primary race polls prior to today's primary vote. As of Tuesday morning, Trump was polling at 29.5 percent, according to Real Clear Politics polling data. 

Ted Cruz is in second place with 21 percent and Marco Rubio is in third with 17.8 percent, according to the data. 

Trump made multiple appearances on talk shows Tuesday morning, talking about, among other issues, his use of the word "pussy" during a rally Monday night. 

The former Apprentice host repeated the word after one of his supporters used it to describe candidate Ted Cruz's stance on torture. 

Trump told reporters on Tuesday he was just "having a little fun," and the crowd loved it.
