If by bigger you mean fluffier, then apparently yes. Read on . . .

Before making popcorn on the stove or in an air popper, soak the kernels in water for 10 minutes.
Drain the water, then pop as normal. The additional moisture helps the popcorn pop up quicker and fluffier with fewer "old maids."

Does soaking popcorn curnels in water make it pop bigger?

No, because too much water in a popcorn kernel will lead to a very weak, if any, pop. The more water in the kernel means you need to heat it longer. If there is too much water in the kernel, the water will never get hot enough to pop.

What batch of popcorn kernels would produce more popcorn a batch of kernels soaked in water or a somewhat dried out batch?

I wouldn't advise soaking your popcorn. Popcorn "pops" because 1) there's water INSIDE the kernel and 2) there's a hard shell to hold the water in. Together, these make it possible to build up STEAM inside the kernel until it bursts the shell, effectively turning the kernel inside-out, puffing it up in the process.
