Because this is like asking for a football match to be replayed or an exam retaken because you don't like the outcome. You can have a second vote, but then don't complain when people call for a third one if they don't get the result they want.

The EU do this all the time btw.
If football matches were settled solely by polling the spectators, or exam grades awarded based on polling of the examining authority and those taking the exam, you may well be in danger of having a point.

In reality, it is daft to claim an exercise of democracy is the same as replaying a football match or resitting an exam.
