serious question about popular vote

I must admit that I have not recently followed the discussion regarding Popular vote/Electoral College. I see that there is a commercial during the Repub debate that advocates for a change to popular vote to determine who wins a race.
Question: Wouldn't this make it easier for fraud if fewer votes can be added or switched across the whole country, rather than just in a few states that are required to win under the college model?

Who are mostly advocating for this change? I know it would have helped with Gore, but the second Bush non-election was found out because they had to do some serious voodoo in Ohio, whereas under the popular model, they can add fewer votes per state, thereby reducing the chance of detection.
