Those who started using it to describe Trump certainly did. And I think more than 1% certainly knew it was a Nazi reference, even if they didn't know the precise history of the term.
Will do a small unscientific test this weekend and will report back. My bet will be only my brother will know its origin.

The phrase itself was coined by Hitler who said Jews created the lie blaming World War 1's loss on ... (I forget, not Googling, as per instructions  :)). The idea being the lie is so far removed from the truth, no one could possibly make it up and it must be true. Then the phrase was used to describe Goebell's propaganda about Jews in the years leading up to the Holocaust.
So Goebbels himself also used the concept against his enemies (Churchill/England). The application of the term to the tactics of the Nazis themselves (or the misattribution of Goebbels describing the big lie as a tactic he himself was using) is less established than Hitler/Goebbel's use. So I think it's strange to call out modern usage of the term for matters less severe than the lies that fed Nazism and the Holocaust. More appropriate might be to call out using the term to describe the actions of your enemy, since that's something the Nazis did.

IIRC Trump has used the phrase "big lie".



Let's see the Trumpsters here condemn him for 'invoking nazis'...
