Because of several reasons:

- The people felt that they weren't really involved in the European conflicts. They would rather concentrate on their own well-being and affairs.

- The War caused much trouble and damage. The European countries were collapsing economically, while the US was prospering

- The US didn't know which side to pick. There were many German immigrants, while the US citizens felt and alignment with Britain.

I think you should still look at some other sources, but I think that those are pretty much the general ones.
