Unless you are going to an Asian country or is willing to pay for Business Class tickets, all economy flights from this part of the world to Europe, Middle East, Africa and yes even America requires connecting flights.
The reason your flights require so many stops are for 2 reasons: First, you're flying from Asia to the US, which typically requires a stop. Secondly, Raleigh isn't a major US airport... So you need to land at a larger US airport to be flown to Raleigh. I see that Delta has a lot of offerings, but most with 3 layovers. However, the flight times are still lower than some of the other airlines' offerings with 2 layovers. I'd start with Kayak (www.kayak.com). Check out your options there... Then when you see what airline offers what you're looking for, book on the airline's website. Good luck.

Raleigh is not a really big airport with lots of flights if compared to New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. Also the city is pretty far from Singapore. Even if you fly from Singapore to the United States, unless you are flying the Singapore Airlines flight that goes non-stop from Singapore to Los Angeles, you will stop somewhere whether it be Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo or Seoul. By the way, the Singapore Airlines flight that goes non-stop from Singapore to LA is an all-Business class seating. Also there are few if any non-stop flights from LA to Raleigh. Therefore there is a good chance you will have to connect somewhere in the U.S. Even though American has the most flights out of Raleigh, they don't fly into Singapore. You can start off by visiting http://www.kayak.com or http://www.orbitz.com. Another option is to see what itinerary a travel agent can get you. The shortest flight I can think of is to fly United to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Chicago. Then Chicago to Raleigh.
The Raleigh airport (RDU) has an international terminal and received direct flights all the time. Check out the airline: American Airlines. They do a large number of direct international flights. I just do not know if they also go to Singapore. Given the most likely routes that an airline would take, I can undersand why there is a stop: the plane needs to refuel. Also, given that RDU is my home airport, I can tell you that from that airport you can pic cheap or you can pick short, but they are opposites of each other. Short costs a lot. Cheap has a lot of stops/layovers.
